CCTV footage has caught the moment a caped criminal broke into businesses in Australia.
The man can be seen running through businesses looking for cash during three break-ins in the city of Orange, New South Wales.

"It is quite unusual, I can tell you right now it is quite distinctive the clothing he is wearing," Detective Inspector Bruce Grassick told 7 News.
He tried to steal cash from different businesses on three mornings between June 29 and July 20, local police said.
He was seen wearing a black cape with a face covering during three attempted heists - the first on a country club, the second on an ATM and the third on a hotel.
Things went from funny to dark with the hotel though as he threatened one employee with a hunting knife and another with a rifle, before trying to raid the venue's poker machines and ATM.
He was last seen jumping a fence beside the hotel carpark and escaping down a railway corridor.
Police are interested in talking to anyone who may know the man, and said he may have worn the clothing outside of his night-time criminal pursuits.
"Have they gone to some function with you and you're thinking, 'Jeez that's unusual'?" Det Insp Grassick said.
