The red masks the suspects were wearing appear to be thin form-fitting masks.

The female suspect may suffer from low back pain or a neck pain condition. Or the suspects may have had difficulty seeing through the masks without tilting their heads back with their necks in a hyperextended posture. In other words, the masks may have held their eyelids down, making it difficult to see without holding their heads back with their eyes fixed downward.

The male suspect carried an AK-47 with stock.
