It is funny.

It's also a reflection of gang culture in the city; the Batman outfit is presumably intended to reduce the likelihood of identification and retribution.

No, the man handed in was a wanted criminal, not someone who'd committed a crime on the night.

I live in Clayton, which you know to be a relatively quiet suburb, but we are are certainly not short of police cars here today.

Yes, mea culpa. Apologies.
:huh:

I hadn't realised it happened two Sundays ago (when Bradford City were at Wembley), and not last Sunday, when people don't generally patrol the streets in superhero outfits.

Yes, the (alleged) villain asked the super-hero to give him a lift to the cop shop.

"No, I can't. Catwoman has me tied to a seat at Wembley, where I'm having to watch City take a pasting. I'll have to escape first." :)
