SAN FRANCISCO — Crooks beware! Batkid was fighting crime Friday on the mean streets of San Francisco.
With the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and thousands of volunteers, 5-year-old Miles Scott, aka Batkid, hopped in a Batmobile and battled "criminals" all over the city Friday.

Miles, who lives in Tulelake in far Northern California, didn’t know what was in store for him and thought he was in San Francisco just to get a Batman costume so he could dress like his favorite superhero, KGO-TV reported.
He was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 18 months old and ended treatments in June.
