A MYSTERY man dressed as Batman demonstrated his crime-fighting skills when he handed over a suspect wanted for burglary in Britain.

Closed-circuit television footage from a police station in Bradford showed a portly figure wearing an ill-fitting costume including gloves, cape and mask, bringing a 27-year-old man to be arrested.

The suspect was arrested and charged with handling stolen goods and fraud-related offences, said the force. But the costumed crime-fighter disappeared into the night without leaving his name.

"The person who brought the wanted man into the station was dressed in a full Batman outfit," said a spokeswoman for West Yorkshire Police. "His identity, however, remains unknown."

The suspect was handed over in the early hours of February 25, said police.
