WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Wilmington Police Department’s spider senses are tingling again. For the third time in less than a month, a store was robbed at gunpoint this morning by someone wearing a Spider-Man mask.
The latest incident happened just before 7 a.m. at the Gas Center at 4001 Market Street. That robbery came two day after the Country Store on Wrightsville Avenue was robbed. Back on Sept. 25, Spidey robbed the Gas Center at 604 South College Road.
Each time he’s demanded cash and Newport cigarettes. One time he also got away with a cell phone.
Police believe the masked suspect is a tall, slim, black man with a deep voice.
If you have any information, call Wilmington Police at (910) 343-3600.
