I told you a week or so ago that the grapevine was reporting an incident involving a member of the Spider-Man film crew, which was shooting scenes for the franchise's next installment a few weeks ago in downtown Rochester. Now, the Rochester Police Department has confirmed the buzz.

According to a police spokesperson, a 26-year-old member of the film crew was assaulted and robbed on Linden Street by more than one suspect. The incident happened around 9:20 p.m. on April 30, and the unknown suspects got away with the victim's iPhone and money clip containing cash and credit cards, the RPD says.

According to the police, the male victim was walking on Linden when he was struck from behind, knocked to the ground, and assaulted. The suspects fled through the yards on Linden Street, the RPD says.
