up, and he was actually injured because of the way they tied him up. >> we want our member to learn from police headquarters and different organizations how to protect themselves. >> reporter: we really cannot see the faces of these four because they are wearing masks but one of them didn't cover up is that to on the back of neck. that the is most identifiable thing so far from any of the surveillance from any hold ups because police think that this tattoo read the fee hail name felicia. if you know anybody with the name felicia tattooed the on the back of the neck they are probably only one in the city with that and they may be part of this crew. that is the break that police are looking for. the reason asian restaurant owners are being hit really four main reasons. they live in these apartments above their businesses and customers know that. mostly only cash business something customers know because they don't take credit card and many of atms in the lobby or out front.
and then asian business owners are notorious for keeping all of their cash in their homes before depositing it in a asian bank sometimes waiting up to a in to do that. all that is adding up to make all of the asian restaurant owners that you see throughout this city targets for this crew of four guys doing this since may and probably going to keep doing this until they are caught. >> at least one of them is really conspicuous that felicia in the back of the neck tattoo. >> give away. steve keeley, thanks very much. opening statements will start later today in the criminal case of the pennsylvania attorney general kathleen kane. >> you can say she's now in the fight of her political career. dave kinchen at the courthouse in norristown with more, hi dave. >> reporter: we know opening statements will begin now that the jury has been seated here at montgomery county courthouse in the trial against pennsylvania attorney general catalan kane. kane left the courthouse after lawyers and the judge spent all day questioning potential jurors. six men and six women were
