ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A man in a Spider-Man mask robbed multiple people at gunpoint in Soulard Tuesday night.
According to the victim, he pulled into a parking lot on South 9th Street to change a flat tire when a man wearing a Spider-Man mask stole his wallet. The search for the masked man has not revealed any suspects in the case, but many say this crime has many people concerned.
Earlier in the week, two women were attacked in Soulard by a man who fired a gun before throwing one of the women to the ground near 8th Street, 10 blocks from where the man in the Spider-Man mask committed his crime.
News 4 contacted Alderman Phyllis Young to find out what is being done to protect residents and businesses who say they are tired of the crimes in the area. She has not returned any phone calls.
