'Batman' hands suspect over to UK police

Posted:
LONDON (AP) -

 A man dressed as Batman has brought a suspected burglar into a police station in northern England.

   West Yorkshire Police said Monday that they do not know the identity of the man who appeared in "a full Batman outfit" and turned in a 27-year-old suspect to police in Bradford, England.

   CCTV images released by police show a caped crusader -- fully-clad with the comic hero's boots, gloves and logo across his chest -- standing alongside a man in a red hooded sweatshirt.

   Police said the handover occurred on February 25 and the suspect will appear in court on March 8 charged with handling stolen goods and fraud-related offenses.
