CARDIFF, Australia, March 10 (UPI) -- Police in Australia said they arrested a suspect in the case of a G-string clad man who stole a Batman mask and cape from a second-hand store.

Investigators said CCTV footage from the Trash Converters second-hand store in Cardiff depicted a man in G-string underwear going through boxes of toys behind the store around 9 p.m. Feb. 26 until he found a Batman mask and cape, the Newcastle Herald reported Monday.

The suspect donned the mask and cape, as well as a silk sash reading "bride to be," and ran off into the night after about a half-hour behind the store.

Michelle Rowe, owner of Trash Converters, said the man in the Batman outfit "didn't look too bad in it either."

Police said their investigation led them to an address Wednesday where they seized the mask, cape and sash. The home's resident, a 35-year-old Cardiff man whose name was not released, was arrested and charged with stealing and entering enclosed lands.

The man was released on bail and is due in court March 26.
