Closed-circuit television footage showed a portly figure wearing an ill-fitting costume including gloves, cape and mask, bringing a 27-year-old man to a police station in Bradford in northern England.
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 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 who released photos of the footage on Monday. In the photo above, you can see the man dressed as Batman and the suspect standing next to him.
The wanted man had been sought by police in connection with a number of alleged offences. Some of the include suspicion of burglary, fraud and breach of a court order.
It is unclear as to why the suspect would agree to go to the jail with Batman instead of the police, but he's lucky he didn't face the wrath of Batman's usual vigilante attitude.
Upon being handed over to police, the suspect was charged with handling stolen goods and fraud-related offences.
Batman, first conceived by DC Comics, is the alter-ego hero of billionaire Bruce Wayne.
