Watch out for that web: Spider Man robs 7-Eleven

Spider Man robs Wilmington 7-Eleven

This was definitely not the work of a friendly neighborhood Spider Man.

A man in a Spider-Man mask stormed a Wilmington 7-Eleven early yesterday morning and ordered the young clerk to hand over the contents of the cash register. The clerk complied, and the robber shot webs out of his hands and escaped by swinging from skyscraper to skyscraper. Actually, that didn't happen. He and an armed accomplice in a boring black face mask escaped on foot toward Elizabeth Avenue.

Delaware State Police today released a photo of the swindling Spider Man in hopes the public can help identify him - although the public might need to use their Spidey Sense to see through that Spider-Man mask.

The incident occurred at 12:45 a.m. yesterday at the 7-Eleven at 2510 Kirkwood Highway. The Spider Man suspect is described as a white man with a thin build, about 5-feet-8-inches and 150 pounds. Besides his Spider-Man mask, he wore black clothing and white gloves and carried an automatic firearm. His felonious friend was white, thin, 6-foot-1, 150 pounds. He was in all black clothes and a black mask.

Anyone with information about this incident should call the Daily Bugle. No, call robbery detectives at Troop 2 at (302) 834-2630, ext. 6. Tipsters can also text keyword "DSP" plus your message to 274637 (CRIMES), submit tips to; or call Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333.
