Sword-Wielding Hero

British police are trying to trace a mysterious samurai sword-wielding vigilante who came to the rescue of two Bobbies when they were being attacked by an armed gang.

The officers had been set upon after they tried to disrupt a burglary at a flat in Laygate, South Shields. A group of men had knocked on the door pretending to be policemen before forcing their way in to ransack the place. The passing plain-clothes officers were alerted when a woman inside started screaming, and went to help.

However, they were outnumbered, and the criminals were armed with a hammer, knives and a metal chain. One of them lunged at a policeman with his knife - but just as he did so, a mysterious do-gooder appeared from nowhere and attacked him with a samurai sword. One of the burglars ran off, but was stopped by the stranger, who hit him on the arm with the sword.
He was arrested, along with another man from the flat, but in true superhero fashion the samurai man disappeared before police could speak to him.

With your mighty sword and questionable belief that you are always right Lt Colonel I believe that you should be a vigilante. In the style of Batman perhaps. Obviously you need a commrade in fighting crime, a comic foil if you will. It is this guise that I offer the services of my alter ego, Sex Piss Man (or l'homme de pee pee as the French call him). I would obviously defer to your more advanced years and, if you wished, call myself Sex Piss Boy (or le garcon de Sex pee pee as the French would then have to call him). We could bestride the city as a might colossus of crime fighting. My first target is that Catholic girls boarding school. Did you know that they make those girls sleep five to a bed in nothing by skimpy thongs. And take communal showers where they have to lather each other down whilst brushing each others teeth with each others tongues....sick inhumane bastards!!!

Anyway I'll meet you tonight in our secret lair (the old abandoned public urinals on the quay....pull the twice and the secret entrance opens!!)

Till then crusader Sex Piss Boy bids you adieu!!!!

Well, if the British plods are true to form, the 'hero' will be arrested, charged with possession of a deadly weapons, assault with a deadly weapon, affray,GBH, obstructing the course of justice, whilst the offenders will be free to ply their thieving ways.
I hope for his sake he paid his council tax.

Once in a while, I agree with Sithy.
British plods are wankers, more interested on canteen chips and cake than actually doing what they are paid to do.
The guy did well to vanish, otherwise he'd be butt-fucked on prime-time.
What I don't understand is why he chose to help them in the first place, - many wouldn't piss on them if they were on fire.

@ Cubaboy: Er.. Great to hear from you.

moves quickly along...

@ Sithy: Bloody hell. I'm sure glad you weren't the one charging me at my Court Martial.

@ Anonymous: "Once in a while, I agree with Sithy." NO! Don't do that. It encourages him. As for halping the police? Wouldn't you?
