Batman Is Real, Delivers Wanted Criminal To Police Station

The Caped Crusader, as it turns out, is British and could probably stand to lose a few pounds. An unidentified man in an ill-fitting Batman outfit escorted a wanted burglar to a police station in northern England, then disappeared awkwardly into the night.

REUTERS — A man dressed as Batman and a burglary suspect stand in a police station in Bradford, northern England, on Feb. 25, 2013, in these still photographs taken from video and provided by West Yorkshire Police on March 4, 2013.

This mystery man dressed as Batman demonstrated the same crime-fighting skills as the Caped Crusader when he handed over a suspect wanted for burglary in Britain.

Closed-circuit television footage showed a portly figure wearing an ill-fitting costume including gloves, a cape, and a mask, bringing a 27-year-old man to a police station in Bradford in northern England.

“The person who brought the wanted man into the station was dressed in a full Batman outfit,” a spokeswoman for West Yorkshire Police said. “His identity, however, remains unknown.”
