Would-be bank robber unmasks self

A Buffalo, N.Y.-area bank hold-up suspect brought a mask to his job -- but forgot to put it on, according to this report:

While handing the teller a demand note, the suspect's cell phone rang. Surveillance video shows the suspect startled by something. He then grabbed the note and ran out of the bank.
Police believe the mystery caller may have been a get-away driver informing the suspect that he forgot to cover his face with the mask. Officers say the driver may have also tipped off the suspect that the Eden police station sits just feet from the bank.
