CINCINNATI, April 28 (UPI) -- A masked man calling himself Shadow Hare says he is on a mission to make life safer for the denizens of Cincinnati.

Shadow Hare, who has revealed only that he is 21 years old and from Milford, Ohio, said he is part of the "Allegiance of Heroes," a nationwide network of real-life masked crime fighters who communicate via the Internet and sometimes travel to each other's cities for team-ups, WLWT-TV in Cincinnati reported Tuesday.

"We help enforce the law by doing what we can in legal standards, so we carry handcuffs, pepper spray ... all the legal weapons," Shadow Hare said. "We will do citizen's arrests. We will intervene on crimes if there is one happening in front of us."

Shadow Hare said the life of a costumed avenger has its risks -- two years ago he suffered a dislocated shoulder while trying to help a woman who was being robbed. However, he said neither injury nor criticism will keep him from his mission to make Cincinnati a better place.

"My message to Cincinnati is that there is still hope and all we have to do is stand together," he said.
