Man Wearing Spider-Man Mask Robs Pizza Delivery Man in Spanish Lake

St. Louis County Police arrested a Hazelwood man accused of Friday's robbery.

A Hazelwood man wore a Spider-Man mask as he robbed a pizza delivery driver Friday in the 1500 block of Marbella in Spanish Lake, St. Louis County Police said.

The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office on Sunday charged Richard D. Whitehead, 31, of the 300 block of Chalmetta Drive in Hazelwood, with first-degree robbery and armed criminal action.

An Imo's Pizza employee was killed Nov. 6 while delivering pizza in Dellwood. A man has been charged with murder in that case.

St. Louis County Police said Whitehead was wearing the Spider-Man mask and was armed with a small, nickel-plated semi-automatic handgun when he approached a Dominos Pizza deliveryman about 11:20 a.m. Friday.

Whitehead robbed the victim of two pizzas and a small amount of money, police said. The victim was not injured.

Whitehead was arrested at his home.

Bail has been set at  $100,000 bond.

Really? Stealing dominos? He needs extra charges on that alone.

Good thing Bat Man wasn't there! Spider Man would have been in big trouble.
