Armed man fends off sword-wielding 'ninja' in South Union(PA)
Edited on Mon Apr-25-11 04:52 PM by RamboLiberal
A Fayette County man attacked by a "ninja" with a sword quickly ended the encounter by pulling a gun.

"The only word that comes to mind is, 'seriously?'" Santino Guzzo, 29, of South Union said today. "I know this isn't a laughing matter, but how many people get attacked by a ninja? Really, a ninja?"

State police are searching for the man, who Guzzo described as wearing a "ninja outfit literally from head to toe." Police said he broke into 11 cars on Braddock Avenue and tried to stab Guzzo with his sword nearby.

Guzzo said he pulled his gun and the man broke the rear window of Guzzo's car as he ran off. Guzzo said he chased the man, who did not move with the grace typically associated with a ninja.

"He was like a gazelle that just got attacked by a lion," Guzzo said. "He got up and fell, and got up and fell. Then he jumped off a cliff."

Local story so I saw the news video - one comment I have to the guy - next time bring a bigger gun to a sword fight. He had one of those little NAA .22 pistols.

2. Was the guy a pirate?
Because as we all know Pirates > Ninjas.

3. Don't bring a knife to a gun fight - no matter how long the knife is.

6. I don't know if this had been a good sword
The guy in the car with the little NAA revolver grabbed the sword. Fortunately for him it was a dull blade. I sure wouldn't want to go up against a real katana and someone who knew how to use with a nose tickler like that bitty revolver.

7. I had a NAA mini in .22LR
It went bang every time you pulled the trigger, but it would be waaaaay low on my "List of shit with which to defend myself".

5. "Jumped off a cliff"? Has anyone checked the bottom of the cliff?
:)

Although this guy was probably not a real ninja, any mention of ninjas in the news triggers an obligatory watching of The Onion's ninja parade clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtR2m20C2YM
