Spider-Man robber strikes again


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The Wilmington Police say a robber with a Spiderman mask has struck again. Investigators say the masked criminal robbed a Kangaroo convenience store by gunpoint Sunday morning.

They say the robbery happened just after the store at 2028 Oleander Drive opened this morning. Police were unable to catch Spiderman as he left the store but they believe it may be the same person responsible for three other recent robberies in the area. They say Spiderman usually steals cash and Newport cigarettes.

Anyone with information is asked to call Wilmington Police at 910-343-3600 or Text-A-Tip to CRIMES (274637).
