Harris County A Popeye s employee feared she would die as two men robbed her store along the Sam Houston Parkway.

The men wore masks, and deputies said one of them even pistol-whipped the woman when she did not hand over money fast enough.

Employees said the store has been robbed a number of times since it opened about two years ago. What happened this week is among their most bizarre cases.

That is because one of the men wore a zombie mask.

Harris County deputies said no customers were inside at the time. When three other employees realized what was happening, they quickly ran out the back door to call for help.

Surveillance video could help investigators.
