A group of people dressed as Batman, Robin, David Hasselhoff and a Smurf helped police officers catch a criminal in an East Lothian supermarket.
A man dressed as Robin was on Eskview road in Musselburgh when he was assaulted just before 20:00 on Friday.
He and his friends, who were in all fancy dress, called the police before chasing the attacker into Tesco.
After a scuffle in their toilet roll aisle, a 21-year old man was arrested. He later pleaded guilty in court.
The incident came to light after East Lothian Police tweeted about it, thanking the fancy-dressed group for their help.
One tweet read : “Thank you to Batman, Robin, Robin’s dad, a Smurf, and the Hoff for helping us on friday night. #Tesco, sorry about the toilet roll aisle.”
Another tweet by police officers in East Lothian read : “Robin assaulted, police called, collective assisted our foot chase, minor upset to shelving in Tescos during arrest, you couldn’t script it!”
A Police Scotland spokesman said : “A 21-year old man was arrested and charged in connection with an assault in Eskview road, Musselburgh, on Friday 1 November.
“He was remanded in custody until Monday 4th November, where he appeared in court and pled guilty to the offence.”
