<img src="http://www.kokoromoyase.hpg.ig.com.br/figuras/ninja.jpg" align=left> A gas station in downtown Arendal was robbed Tuesday by a person dressed as a Japanese ninja. The man disappeared on a bike.
This information was provided to the local paper Agderposten by an eye witness, who also stated that the robber was carrying both a sword and a knife.
«I was going down there to buy cigarettes, when I saw a man run into the gas station,» the eye witness explained to the paper. «He was wearing something that looked like a ninja hood, carrying a knife, and he had a sword sticking up from the back of his pants.»
David Stamnes at the Agder police district confirmed that that robber was wearing some sort of mask, armed with a knife, and had something unidentified sticking up from the back of his pants.
«The robber was allegedly of foreign decent, and he threatened the clerk and got a hold of a couple of bills,» Stamnes said.
There was one person on duty at the gas station when the robber occurred around 5 am.

Did he throw a smoke bomb at the clerk in order to make his escape? Can you imagine him making his escape by running out of the store, hopping on his bike and pedaling away.

'Ninja' robber nabbed
The weird story of a ninja warrior who robbed a Norwegian gas station before escaping on a bicycle has been solved in record time. The tale was invented by a petty thief trying to get a tip-off fee from a newspaper after his robbery went wrong, newspaper Agderposten reports.
Robber wields sword in gas station heist - 23.03.04
With only some petty cash to show for his knife-point robbery of a Shell station in Arendal, the thief sorely wanted to pad his income. An hour later he called Agderposten's news hotline with an incredible story, and demanded the NOK 1,000 reward for a hot tip.
"I saw a man run into the station. He had a ninja-like hood, was carrying a knife and had a sword sticking up from the back of his trousers," said the excited caller. The man gave his name and telephone number and insisted on being paid the reward, the newspaper reports.
Police confirmed yesterday that the robber had something unidentifiable sticking up behind his back.
A close examination of the station's security video camera revealed that the robber bore no resemblance to the legendary Japanese ninja.
The caller later went to police to testify as a witness to the robbery, where he was recognized by man robbed at the gas station and then arrested.

He was punching him like the collective karmic debt he'd accrued was coming to collections, mostly on his face.
