ROY, Utah (AP) -- Police say a man who was dressed as a ninja wasn't all that stealthy when he tried to get away after robbing some people.

The man was picked up a few minutes after police were notified of a robbery Thursday night near 5100 South and 1950 West in Roy. Witnesses said the man was dressed like a ninja -- all in black and carrying a machete instead of a samurai sword.

Witnesses told police the man also had a pistol and pointed it at them when he demanded money and drugs.

The man was booked into the Weber County jail on suspicion of robbery and assault.
