‘G-string Batman’ breaks into second-hand store

NEAR NEWCASTLE, Australia (CNN/SEVEN NETWORK) — Authorities in Australia caught a thief with an apparent love for superheroes.

Detectives say the suspect robbed a second-hand store near Newcastle wearing nothing but a G-string. It was all caught on camera.

In the video, you see the man walk into the shop’s backyard. He goes out of sight and then returns wearing a “Batman” outfit.

Authorities say he found the items in the store: a mask, cape, Batman doll and a “bride-to-be” sash. He played around in the shop’s backyard before leaving.

Officers quickly apprehended the suspect and revealed his true identity — not “Bruce Wayne,” but a 35-year-old man who lives nearby.
