I would say that is a face that only a mother could love, but…..

A 27-year-old son received no money and a charge for home invasion after failed attempt to rob his mother at knifepoint.

Austin Smith, of Pekin, Illinois, had nine knives and wore a mask in his attempt to steal the woman’s credit cards and cash, but he did not leave the house with anything.

The would-be robber, who tried but failed to tie his mother up to prevent her from calling the police, was arrested 90 minutes after the attempted theft around 12.45pm Friday afternoon.

Mom said she recognized him even with the mask.
