U.S. troops were attacked in the middle of the night by a sword-wielding ninja.
On September 18, around 1:00 am, in the California desert, U.S. special operations troops were allegedly attacked by a manÂ âwearing full ninja garb.â
AsÂ perÂ Unlad, at least two people were reportedly injured. The incident took place at Inyokern Airport, near Los Angeles, NPRÂ reveals.
According to aÂ reportÂ that went viral on Instagram, a staff sergeant was approached by a ninja, who asked him:Â âDo you know who I am?âÂ andÂ âDo you know where my family is?âÂ
Unfortunately, the sergeant had no clue who the man was or what had happened to his loved ones.
The ninja then âbegan to slashâ at him and managed to injure his leg.
Following the strange encounter, the sergeant ran and joined the rest of the crew in an administration building. However, the ninja continued attempting to break in, throwing aÂ âlarge block of asphaltâÂ through a window, which hit a captain in the head.
The suspect was later located on a nearby road. After he refused to follow police commands, heÂ âbrandished the sword at deputies,âÂ so they tased him in order to restrain him.
Officers identified the ninja as Gino Rivera, 35. He was arrested forÂ âattempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, brandishing a weapon, brandishing a weapon with the intent to resist or prevent an arrest.â
The injured sergeant and the captain required stitches for their wounds but were cleared to return to duty.
