Robber uses Spiderman cover

| 26/02/2009

(CNS): A store on Walkers Road was robbed Thursday afternoon, 26 February, by two men carrying what looked like a knife and a sword and wearing costumemasks. The 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call from a staff member of ‘Shop Right’ at around 1:30 pm reporting that two masked men had robbed the store. Police responded to the scene and learnt that two men had entered the store with the weapons and demanded cash from the clerk, who was working alone in the shop, and after receiving an undisclosed sum of money they left the store on foot.

The men were wearing jeans and dark coloured tops and had masks over their faces. One of the masks is described as a Halloween type of mask, the other was a Spiderman mask. No-one was injured in the incident. Police carried out an area search but unfortunately the offenders were not located.

Anyone who was in the area at the time of the robbery who may have seen something important is asked to contact Detective Constable Dave Morrison on 516-1045 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling Crime Stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.

    It shows how far the society has dropped into the pit of depravity that an armed criminal would wear a spiderman mask to commit an armed robbery. Is nothing sacred? I hope this fake spiderman is captured and his secret identity shown to the public to proclaim that this is not the real spiderman just a cheap imposter.
