Early on Feb. 25, a man dressed as Batman walked into a police station in Yorkshire, England, dragging with him Danny Frayne, a 27-year-old wanted in connection with a burglary.
“I’ve caught this one for you,” he told police before fleeing.
His identity was a mystery until Tuesday, when a 39-year-old Chinese food delivery man named Stan Worby revealed that he is “Batman” and Frayne is his buddy.
“Danny’s a good friend of mine and I’ve known him for 15 years or so,” Worby told the Daily Telegraph.
When Frayne called Worby for a ride to the police station late on Feb. 24, Worby decided not to change out of his Batman costume, which he had been wearing to a London football match.
“At the end of the day it was a practical joke, just between me and Daniel.”
