LONDON - The 'Dark Knight' isn't just a fictional character any more.
He's apparently a British man dressed in a Batman costume.
Reuters reports the man demonstrated the same crime-fighting skills as Batman after handing over a suspect wanted for burglary to police in Britain on February 25.
According to the report , surveillance footage shows the man in an ill-fitting Batman costume. He's wearing the gloves, the cape and the mask -- and he's got a 27-year-old man accused of handling stolen goods and fraud-related offenses.
But here's the craziest part: The costumed crime-fighter disappeared into the night without leaving his name, Reuters reports .
"The person who brought the wanted man into the station was dressed in a full Batman outfit," a spokeswoman for West Yorkshire Police told Reuters . "His identity, however, remains unknown."
