Batkid Catches Riddler Red-Handed: PHOTOS

Quizzical foe the Riddler was captured by crime-fighting duo Batman and Batkid during a attempted robbery in the Bank of Italy safety deposit box vault this morning. The villain was apprehended at approximately 11:10am near the corner of Clay and Montgomery in the city’s Financial District.

Batkid Miles, who has been fighting crime in our fair city–including the dastardly undertakings of the Riddler (who reportedly tied a woman to some Hyde Street trolley tracks just minutes before the attempted bank vault heist) and the Penguin (who we are getting word has just kidnapped Giants mascot Lou Seal).

The robbery was part of a grand series of events planned by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, who set up today’s remarkable tour de force to bring to life the dreams of 5-year-old leukemia combatant and superhero Miles.
