'Spider-Man' robberies in Altamonte Springs linked, police say
Masked gunman flees with cash; No injuries reported
ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. – For the second time in less than a month, a man wearing a Spider-Man mask robbed an Altamonte Springs store at gunpoint, and police believe the same man is responsible in both crimes.
A masked man carrying a handgun entered the Subway at 954 E. Altamonte Drive around 10 p.m. Tuesday and robbed the restaurant, according to Altamonte Springs police.
WKMG-TV reports no one was injured.
The culprit made off with an undetermined amount of money.
In March, a man wearing a Spider-Man mask and another masked man robbed a 7-Eleven on Lake Destiny Road in Maitland.
The clerk told police a rifle was pointed at her and one of the gunmen slammed her to the ground.
Police said the man wearing the Spider-Man mask in both robberies also wore a hunting-type hat and made similar statements to the clerks.
Detectives will be checking surveillance video at nearby businesses in the area throughout the day.
