'Spider-Man' Robs Moline, Il. Shell Gas Station

He must have left his Spidey-web at home.

Police say that a man in a Spider-Man mask wielding a foot-long machete held up an Illinois gas station Sunday evening, KWQC reports.

Investigators in Moline, Ill., are searching for the man and his partner, who witnesses saw flee the Shell Express Lane location heading westbound in a light-colored pickup truck, possibly a Ford F-series, according to Quad-City Times.

"If anyone comes to your business with a mask on, you probably know they're in there for no good, even on Halloween," Moline Police Department detective Scott Williams told WQAD.

It seems that when robbers aren't dressing up as a former president of the United States, Spiderman is a go-to disguise. In August, 'Spiderman' robbed another gas station in Oklahoma City, Okla., and just a couple weeks ago, 'Spiderman' had his plot to rob a Jacksonville, N.C., convenience store foiled by two clerks armed with brooms.

Authorities request that anyone with information regarding the incident call the Moline Police Department 309-797-0401 or Crime Stoppers of the Quad-Cities at 309-762-9500.
