Batman may usually fight people like The Joker and the Court of Owls in his comic book adventures, but in West Yorkshire, England, he’s fighting petty crime.
A suspect charged with handling stolen goods and fraud was turned into the West Yorkshire police department by a concerned citizen – who happened to be dressed in a head-to-toe Batman costume. Like the Dark Knight, the man “disappeared into the night” without revealing his identity.
“Closed-circuit television footage showed a portly figure wearing an ill-fitting costume including gloves, cape and mask, bringing a 27-year-old man to a police station in Bradford in northern England,” reported Reuters.
This isn’t the first time someone has dressed up as Batman to “fight crime,” but it is the first report of success in an international arena. Looks like Batman, Inc has gone global in the real world.
