According to cops, Bradley approached the 24-year-old victim and demanded, “Give me your purse.” The woman, who thought Bradley was carrying a gun, ran away, screaming for help. Bradley was subsequently apprehended and both the victim and a witness identified him as the would-be robber.
Investigators recovered a metal pipe Bradley had been holding. When asked about his superhero costume, the suspect explained that it was part of his “disguise.”
