WEYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) - Police say a man dressed liked a ninja
used a sword in an attempt to rob a Weymouth dry cleaner.
According to police, a convenience store clerk called police
Monday after she noticed a man walking into the store wearing a ski
mask and carrying a sword in a sheath on his belt. When the man
noticed her, he pulled his mask off and asked if she was calling
about him, police said.
When she said she was, police said the man left the store and
walked into nearby Galaxy Cleaners.
There, police said he pointed a sword at the register and asked
a clerk to give him all the money inside. Police said he left after
she told him she couldn't open the drawer.
Police still are searching for the man, who witnesses said
appeared to be in his late 20s.
