Russian ‘ninja’ arrested in Italy

Italian police have arrested a Russian “ninja” who had been spreading fear across farmlands in the north of the country.

The man, camouflaged in an all black suit, had robbed several farmers and their families at knife point, police say.

Police had been searching for him for several weeks.

Ninjas were trained for stealth. They first appeared in 14th Century Japan and were famed as assassins and spies.

Outwitted

For several weeks the police had been scouring the countryside looking for shadows.

The “ninja” was known to have struck several times - his head wrapped in a black bandana, a powerful bow in one hand and a knife strapped to his leg.

He targeted isolated farms late at night forcing farmers to hand over cash and valuables at arrow point.

His victims were usually so afraid they didn’t report the attacks until some days later.

But on Monday night the “ninja” was outwitted.

As he smashed through the door of a farmhouse, a feisty old pensioner was waiting for him.

Former soldier

The old man came down the stairs but tripped on the last step letting off his rifle.

Startled, the “ninja” made his escape, hopping onto a bicycle and racing off into the nearby cornfields - followed by police who were quickly on the scene.

Police eventually trailed him to an abandoned farmhouse where he was arrested.

He was later identified as Igor Vaclavic, a former soldier from the Russian army.

He was caught carrying night scopes and a head torch.

When asked about his chosen disguise, he told police he had been inspired by his boyhood idol - Robin Hood.

Yes, that scene in the Errol Flynn movie where he leaps sixteen feet in the air, dances across the tips of the guards’ spears then double backflips to the ground and sends them all flying with a 360 degree roundhouse kick just sticks with you!

You could say, maybe: “he made a dutch escape”

“let me just put my thing in there” or “THAT WAS AMAZING!”

I feel sorry for the poor guy.

Clearly the real Ninja saw a man riding his bicycle and loaded him up with all his gear and Ninja clothes before the police arrived. He likely also scared the poor guy into telling the police he was the Ninja (yes, even ex-military can be intimidated by a Ninja).

Robbing them at arrow point??  I’m still trying to get my head around that one.    How is he supposed to carry the loot and threaten them at the same time??

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

Seen on a tshirt - “If life gives you melons you may be dyslexic”

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.
