LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Authorities are looking for a man they say robbed a 7-Eleven store early Thursday morning while wearing a Spiderman mask.

According to Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers, just before 3 a.m., a black male wearing a Spiderman-type mask entered the 7-Eleven store on College Parkway just west of Summerlin Road.

While brandishing a silver knife, the suspect demanded all the money from both of the registers.  Once the clerk complied, the suspect ordered the woman to open up the front door for him, at which point he fled on foot in an unknown direction.

Anyone with information on the identity and whereabouts of the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).  All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.  Tips may also be made online at or by submitting a tip on the P3Tips mobile app.
