(AP) -- A robbery suspect tried to hide his face with a pair of underwear but the disguise didn't fool witnesses.
Police arrested 40-year-old Jerry Keene and 48-year-old Elizabeth Blankenship, both of English, a short time after the pair allegedly robbed The Hillbilly Market in English Tuesday night.
McDowell County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Mark Shelton says Blankenship went into the convenience store and then left. Keene then entered, concealing his face with the underwear, allegedly showed a gun and demanded money.
Shelton says witnesses identified the suspect, despite the disguise.
Blankenship and Keene were each charged with armed robbery. They were being held Wednesday night at the McDowell County Holding Facility.
