Spider-Man crew member robbed in Rochester?


Seriously, what good is having Spider-Man around if he can’t stop a common street mugging?

According to the minutes of the May 13 NBN Sector 6 meeting — and confirmed by someone who was at the meeting — a member of the Spider-Man film crew was the victim of an alleged street robbery while the crew was shooting recently in downtown Rochester.

I asked the police about the incident. Rochester Police Department spokesperson Sgt. Justin Collins said he’s looking into it.

NBN Sector 6 is a group of business and neighborhood leaders in southeast Rochester that focuses on planning and collaboration among neighborhoods, businesses, and government. Sector 6 includes the South Wedge, Highland Park, Lilac, Swillburg, Upper Mt. Hope, and Azalea neighborhoods.
