A 34-year-old Missouri man was shot in the face Friday after he tried to rob a bank while wielding a toy gun.
The suspect, Michael Oliva, entered Security Bank in Trimble, Mo., Friday afternoon wearing a black mask and holding a realistic plastic gun replica, the police report states.

Mr. Olivia pointed the “gun” at a bank employee and demanded she empty her teller drawer. Not knowing the gun was fake, she dropped to the floor and began crawling toward another bank employee shouting for help.
A brilliant career as a bank robber likely over, apparently they were able to save face.
