He was a charming, good looking robber, and the two female workers at the supermarket said they were so impressed they couldn't forget his face. "He was cute," testified both of the employees before Tyrone Barnes, 21, of Cosgrove Street near Germantown Avenue, was convicted yesterday of robbery and related charges by Common Pleas Judge Anthony J. DeFino. Sentencing was deferred. "He may have been a hit with the women, but he flunked out as a robber," said Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Greenfield.

Eight months before her murder, a terrified Nicole Brown Simpson called the Los Angeles Police Department after O.J. Simpson smashed down the back door to her home and launched into a threatening tirade laced with profanity. A recording of the Oct. 25 episode was released yesterday. "My ex-husband has just broken into my house and he's ranting and raving outside in the front yard," Nicole Simpson tells a police dispatcher. A voice identified as O.J. Simpson's can be heard shouting obscenities as his ex-wife pleaded with him to leave and not to disturb their two young children, who were sleeping upstairs.

Who was that masked man in the City Hall courtroom? No, it wasn't the Lone Ranger. It was the prosecutor. Assistant District Attorney Douglas Roberts wore a navy-blue ski mask for about a minute during his closing argument in a robbery case last week. Roberts was trying to make a point. He wanted to prove to the jury that "the characteristics of a person" are the same, and recognizable, even if you can't see his face. And he won his case. The jury convicted Gustav Dahl, 33, of a $856 robbery of a bar on Susquehanna Avenue and Thompson street at 1:55 a.m. last Jan. 11 - even though no one inside saw his face.

Yesterday, Tiger Woods had one of his front teeth accidentally knocked out after surprising girlfriend Lindsey Vonn by showing up in Italy to watch her record-setting, 63rd World Cup victory. This time it wasn't a 7-iron that did the damage, it was a camera. "During a crush of photographers at the awards podium at the World Cup event in Italy, a media member with a shoulder-mounted video camera pushed and surged toward the stage, turned and hit Tiger Woods in the mouth," Mark Steinberg, Woods' agent, told the Associated Press in an email.
