Residents of Lynnwood in Washington can sleep safely in their beds, knowing that their streets are being protected by... Phoenix Jones.
The city, just north of Seattle, is part of the patrolling zone of a self-styled superhero who roams the streets in search of injustice.
Rumours of the costumed crimefighter - and others like him - began to surface as residents spoke of unconfirmed sightings around the streets.
Then a Lynwood local, who only wanted to be identified as Dan, had a first-hand meeting.
Dan said he was returning to a parking lot on Sunday evening when he spotted a 'bad guy' trying to break in to his car with a piece of metal.
Dan said: 'He started sticking it down between the window and the rubber strip.'
