Vigilante Calling Himself "Batman" Apprehends Alleged Double Homicide Suspect

A California resident who goes by the names "Bruce Wayne" and the "Stockton Batman" made the news recently after claiming to have apprehended a double-murder suspect.

The vigilante, who alleges to have caught hundreds of criminals over the years, was reportedly in Lodi, California, when he spotted a local man he recognised. The man was apparently covered in blood, and had slice wounds on his hands and leg. "Batman" added that he also found two victims near train tracks between Century Park and Salas Park, and detained the suspect while he waited for local police to arrive.

The alleged suspect is currently in hospital being treated for his injuries, although police have yet to confirm if he had any involvement with the double homicide - or if the Stockton Batman helped in any way at all.

The suspect is currently in hospital, but police have not confirmed if the suspect is being detained for the crimes.

"Police are not commenting on the man's claims. They haven't even let us know or confirmed how many people died. The man who calls himself Stockton's batman claims in a social media post the two victims were stabbed," a reporter for CBS Sacramento said.

Stockton Batman has never revealed his face or real name to the world, and uses social media to spread the claims of his many arrests.

CBS Sacramento later confirmed a suspect had been taken into custody, and added that the arrest was "made in part to the man who calls himself Stockton Batman".

The Stockton Batman also shared a video on YouTube of the alleged double-murder suspect being arrested by police, which you can see here.

"I grew up in Stockton and things weren't always this bad when I was a child," the vigilante said in a 2018 interview with CBS Sacramento after detaining a man he claimed had been smoking crystal meth. "I am the real Batman."

"He's doing a pretty good service for us. He's, you know, getting 'em where the police aren't," one witness said.
