U.K. "Batman" Is Really A Chinese Food Delivery Man

And he wasn’t fighting crime, but playing a prank with his pal. There are no heroes!

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.”
