An Opelousas robbery victim’s attention to detail helped authorities identify the masked armed robbers who attacked him.

The incident happened on February 2nd at a house on Celvinie Lane. The male victim heard a knock at the door around 10:30 p.m. that night when he saw two masked men and one unmasked man standing on his porch, armed with a shotgun.
