Holy Grocery Grapple! Batman, Robin, David Hasselhoff, a giant Smurf and a scuffle in the toilet roll aisle as 'superheroes' nab attacker

The attacker soon found he had messed with the wrong group of fancily-dressed persons

Kapow! Holy supermarket superheroes Batman!

Now here's something you don't see everyday...

A group of people dressed as Batman, Robin, David Hasselhoff and a giant Smurf turned have-a-go heroes during a night out in Musselburgh after the boy-wonder of the group was assaulted.

The bizarre incident, which was recounted by East Lothian Police in a trio of increasingly surreal tweets, began when a man dressed as Robin was assaulted on Eskview Road in Musselburgh just before 20:00 on Friday.

The attacker soon found he had messed with the wrong group of fancily-dressed persons however after they gave chase through the Eskview Road Tesco store before becoming involved in a short scuffle in the toilet roll aisle.

A 21-year-old man was arrested and later admitted the attack in court.

The incident came to light after East Lothian Police tweeted about it.

"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," the force tweeted.

Another tweet 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 told the BBC: "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."
