Burglary suspect caught by Batman

6:30 am on 5 March 2013

A mystery man dressed as Batman has apprehended a suspect wanted for burglary in northern England.

Closed-circuit television footage issued on Monday showed a portly figure wearing an ill-fitting costume including gloves, cape and mask, taking a man to a police station in Bradford on 25 February.

Police said the suspect was arrested and charged with handling stolen goods and fraud offences.

But the costumed crime-fighter disappeared into the night without leaving his name.
