Convenience Store Clerk Fights Off Spiderman

Spiderman convenience store robberyJACKSONVILLE, North Carolina - A note to would-be crooks channeling their favorite superheroes: Just because you're wearing the mask, it doesn't mean you have super powers.

Authorities in North Carolina say a sword-wielding bandit wearing a Spider-Man mask walked into a convenience store Wednesday morning and demanded money.

The Onslow County Sheriff's Office says the clerk pulled out a broom and poked the suspect in the stomach. A second clerk joined in the struggle. The suspect lost his mask and part of his ponytail was ripped out before he fled.

Sheriff's deputies found him at a nearby home. Fifty-six-year-old Dale Foughty faces several charges. He is jailed under $100,000 bond. It wasn't immediately known if he had an attorney.
