A construction firm manager returning from New Year's Eve fancy dress party scared off a burglar by charging at him dressed as the Norse god Thor.

Six-foot tall Torvald Alexander, 38, was wearing a red cape and the thunder god's silver-winged helmet when he spotted the raider in his front room rifling through a desk.

Mr Alexander, who runs building firm Alexander & Summers in Edinburgh, Scotland, said the burglar threw himself out of a first floor window of his £350,000 home in the Inverleith area of the city after being caught red handed.

Mr Alexander said: "As soon as he saw me his eyes went wide with terror.

"He looked like he had had a few drinks and decided to do a late night break in, but he hadn't counted on the God of Thunder living here."

He added: "I had just got back from a fancy dress New Year's party and because I have a Norwegian name I decided to go as Thor.

"It took ages making the cape, helmet and breast plate, and I must admit it was a bit chilly walking home, but when I saw that guy I just went mad and charged at him, my cape flying behind me.

Mr Alexander said that the burglar had not managed to steal anything, but had left his shoes at the scene.

He said: "He had obviously taken off his shoes to creep about in silence, but when he saw me he just jumped out of the window in his socks.

Mr Alexander said he was contacting police and was going to hand over the burglar's shoes in the hope police can trace him.

Fancy dress party in... Tinfoil?

That guy's face had to be priceless though, shame the guy didn't have cameras.

It would have been very funny if he dressed as Loki XD

anyone drunk would get scared to see a norse god caught you red handed. What more when this norse god charged at you?

Great example of battle-cosplay here. I only wish the guy had yelled "SPOON!" before charging.

This is a good example of a worthwhile wacky news thread. Take notes, newbie topic starters!
