The BBC is reporting that a woman has claimed she was pulled into an alleyway and indecently assaulted by Batman over the weekend. She's hardly the first person who has regretted a meeting in a dark alley with Batman, but she may be the most sympathetic.
The incident took place just off Broad Street in the town of Magherafelt at around 1:15 am on Sunday. Coincidentally, that is the exact time of night when Batman is usually on the prowl.
It is understood the woman was walking past a Chinese restaurant when she was pulled into the crime alley by the man in the Batman costume.
This costumed attacker has been described as having dark spiky hair and a squashed nose. Police have appealed for anyone who witnessed the incident to pass on information.
