Alleged "Spider-Man Bandit" Charged in Second Armed Robbery


By George McDonald

From the West Alabama Newsroom--  The robbery suspect some people are calling the "Spider-Man Bandit" -- is charged with the armed robbery of a second Selma business.

Eric Bernard Robinson, Junior was arrested and charged with robbing the Sav-A-Lot on Highland Avenue Friday.
Now he is also charged with robbing the A-B-C liquor store right down the street -- about four days earlier.

Selma Police lieutenant Curtis Muhannad says both businesses were robbed at gunpoint by a man wearing a Spider-Man mask -- who ran from the scene on foot. He says both businesses were equipped with video surveillance.

"Right now, we're waiting for the video from the robbery of Sav-A-Lot which will show the suspect inside of there donning the mask," said Muhannad.

Robinson made a first appearance in Dallas County District Court Monday afternoon. He was appointed a lawyer and his bond was set at a million dollars.

"He's walking around with masks robbing stores, and of course we're going to put him a web he can't get out of," said Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson.

  A preliminary hearing date was set for July 2nd.
