Crouching tigress, hidden blagger

Pennsylvania's Richmond Township is indubitably bemoaning its lack of a mobile SWAT team of crimebusting vigilante Shaolin Temple kung fu monks after two women dressed as ninjas robbed a local gas station at swordpoint.

According to thepittsburghchannel.com, the pair crouching tigered their way into the Sunoco station at 3am on Saturday, menaced the clerk with a sword and dagger, tied the poor fellow up and made off with "cash, cigarettes and lottery tickets".

Chief Robert Amman of the Northern Regional Police Department said: "They were all covered in black and carrying swords, so it did appear that they were dressed like ninjas. Swords, daggers could be used to seriously harm victims, so this is a very serious crime."

The revelation that ninja she-devils are operating in Richmond Township has evidently left locals in a state of shocked bewilderment. Rick Lekki, who owns the R and J's bar across the street from the Japanese-themed blag, admitted: "It's shocking. Things like that just don't happen out here. I just can't believe it happened." ®
