Police in Prince George’s County may need to use their “spidey sense” to solve a bank robbery.

A man donning a black Spider-Man mask with a white web design across the face robbed a Fort Washington bank teller at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon, county police said.

The man took an undisclosed amount of money from a BB&T Bank, in the 9400 block of Livingston Road.

The robbery is the first that police spokesman Cpl. Mike Rodriguez could recall in which somebody channeled his inner Marvel Comic super hero to commit such a crime in Prince George’s.

But investigators are hoping the robber’s unique apparel choice will help their investigation, if someone is able to recognize the man’s attire.

“The mask would probably give it away,” Cpl. Rodriguez said.

In addition to the Spider-Man mask, police said the man also wore a black hooded Spider-man sweater with a spider on the chest, a black-and-gray North Face jacket, gloves and black shoes with white soles.

He carried a blue canvass bag. Upon leaving the bank, the man got into a dark colored Chrysler Pacifica-style vehicle and drove toward Oxon Hill Road.
