Pd50991-4 The 'superman' hero

WAYNE Davies showed he was a man of steel when he chased a thief and made a citizen's arrest - while wearing his Superman dressing gown.

Wayne gave chase when a man was disturbed in the kitchen of his family home in St Anne's Drive, Monk Bretton at about 10.40pm on Monday.

Wayne, 38, said the thief bolted out of the kitchen door and over a fence but was eventually caught by him and his son Alex, 17.

I'm glad this man caught this burglar as before he burgled him he did me first I was terrified and had my two year old I confronted him and he just ignored me like I wasn't even there.
