CORNELIA, Ga. (AP) — The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is asking for help identifying a suspect wearing a Spider-Man mask who may be responsible for two bank robberies.

The GBI says in a news release that a person wearing a Spider-Man mask walked in to the Traditions Bank in Cornelia on Tuesday and threatened the teller with a bomb, taking an undisclosed amount of money.

Authorities say the robber had a slender build and was wearing dark pants and a camouflage hoodie and was driving a dark, four-door, hatchback car, similar to a Nissan Versa.

A similar robbery happened Nov. 16 in Gwinnett County. Authorities say that robber also donned a Spider-Man mask and claimed to have a bomb.
