A man witnesses said was dressed like a ninja used a sword in an attempt to rob a dry cleaner on Main Street, police said.
The man, wearing a ski mask and a sword in a sheath on his belt, walked into the Tedeschi convenience store at 1039 Main St. around 8 a.m. Monday, Sgt. Richard Fuller said.
“All the witnesses said he was dressed like a ninja,” Fuller said. “He was in all black including the black ski mask. And they said it was a ‘ninja sword’ (he was carrying).”
A clerk, alarmed by the man’s appearance, called police. When the man noticed her, he pulled his mask off and asked if she was calling about him, Fuller said.
When she said she was, the man left the store and walked into nearby Galaxy Cleaners.
There, Fuller said he pointed a sword at the register and asked a clerk to give him all of the money inside. She told him she couldn’t open the drawer, and the man left the scene, Fuller said.
Police are still searching for the man, who witnesses said appeared to be in his late 20s.

I guess the word is finally getting out that Ninja's don't exist, and therefore they are not to be feared. But you have to wonder at if that was a sword, why didn't he just claim to be Zorro or on the way to a film lot.
