    UK - Pot-bellied, Batman-clad crime vigilante hand-delivers suspect to police station

    'I've caught this one for you': Pot-bellied vigilante dressed as Batman drags wanted man to police station (Daily Mail)
    ---
    A spokesman for West Yorskshire Police said today: 'Last week we had a very strange occurrence at the police station when a male wanted for an offence in our area was 'escorted' up to our help desk at Trafalgar House by Batman.

    'Batman came up to the help desk, stated to the staff "I've caught this one for you" and then promptly vanished into the night.'
    ---
    The spokesman said the identity of Batman remains a mystery.

    Crime-ridden Bradford - stalked in the past by real life monsters such as the Yorkshire Ripper and Crossbow Cannibal - was quick to take the mystery crusader to its heart.

    It is understood the body language of the two men suggested they may have been known to each other, and there was no resistance from the suspect, who was later charged with handling stolen goods and fraud-related offences.
