A man dressed as Batman has walked into a police station and handed over a wanted man to officers.

West Yorkshire Police said they do not know the identity of the man who took the 27-year-old into Trafalgar House police station in Bradford.

The wanted man had been sought by police in connection with a number of alleged offences.

A member of the public dressed in a full Batman outfit took him into the station in the early hours of February 25th.

“The person who brought the wanted man into the station was dressed in a full Batman outfit," the spokesman said. “His identity, however, remains unknown.”

The arrested man was later charged with handling stolen goods and fraud related offences and will appear before magistrates on Friday.
