Police say two women dressed from head to toe as ninjas broke into a home in an effort to abduct a 15-year-old girl, Salt Lake City Fox affiliate KSTU reports.
The attack happened in the generally placid Salt Lake City suburb of West Jordan, Utah, late Thursday night.
The 15-year-old girl is scheduled to testify in court next week against the shared boyfriend of the two ninja-clad women, ages 18 and 22, the station notes.
The amateur ninja women came armed with knives and stun guns. They forced their way through a door. However, a man inside the house heard the would-be abductors and thwarted their plan.
“I heard a creak, and there was silence for like 20 or 30 seconds,” the unidentified man told KSTU (on camera with just his shoes and his legs showing).
“I went to the bottom of the stairs and saw a couple of ninjas coming down,” the man went on to explain, laughing just a little bit as he spoke.
The attackers were wearing “all dark gray or black,” he said. They had “black rubber gloves on” and “ninja masks.”
“All I could see of them was their eyes,” the man added.
“My adrenaline was pumping so bad,” he told KSTU. “They grabbed for me. One of them covered my mouth, and the other grabbed my throat, but they were both pretty small so I threw them back and started shouting to get anybody awake that I could.”
