A man dressed as Batman walked into a Bradford police station and handed over a wanted man last week. West Yorkshire Police said they do not know the identify of the caped crusader. A 27-year-old man has now been charged with burglary and fraud.
Bradford 'Batman' unmasked as Stan the delivery man
A masked crusader who walked into a police station dressed as Batman to hand over an alleged criminal has revealed himself as Stan the delivery man.
Mr Warby, 39, told ITV's Daybreak that he had been at Bradford City's cup final clash against Swansea dressed as the superhero when his friend, Danny Frayne, called him asking for help in handing himself in to officers.
Asked why he went dressed as the comic book hero, he said: "Obviously he wanted to get straight down there and I wanted my bed as it was 1.30am."
Frayne, 27, was later charged with handling stolen goods and fraud-related offences, and will appear before magistrates on Friday.
The odds that 'Batman' will hand over another criminal suspect to West Yorkshire Police before the end of 2013 are good, standing at 3/1.
It looks like there is slightly less chance of the Boy Wonder accompanying Batman next time, as the odds of 'Robin' appearing in handing over another criminal suspect to West Yorkshire police before the end of 2013 are 5/1.
A man is due in court charged with handling stolen goods after another man dressed in a batman costume handed him over to the police.
The incident happened on February 25 when a 'wanted' man was taken into Trafalgar House police station in Bradford. As a result a 27-year-old man will now appear at Bradford magistrates court on March 8th.
"The person who brought the wanted man into the station was dressed in a full batman outfit. His identity, however, remains unknown"
