Belgrade - Spiderman robbed a post office in the Macedonian capital Skopje only to be stung by police hours later, the Press24 news portal reported Thursday. A man dressed as the Marvel Comic hero barged into the post office Wednesday evening waving a toy gun and scared employees into handing over some 80 000 denars (1 750 dollars). He fled, but was arrested hours later, police said. The 31-year-old suspect confessed to the crime, but only around 3 000 denars were recovered, police said.
