And one of the most read BBC stories of today is about a thief who dressed as a ninja, who was going around robbing and terrorizing farmers with a bow and arrow in rural Italy.

Seems like he chose the wrong farmhouse to terrorize:

As he smashed through the door of a farmhouse, a feisty old pensioner was waiting for him.

The old man came down the stairs but tripped on the last step letting off his rifle.

Startled, the “ninja” made his escape…- followed by police who were quickly on the scene…eventually trailed him to an abandoned farmhouse where he was arrested.

Turns out the thief was a Russian ex soldier who never thought the easy going Italians might include some who might fight back.

Way to go, grandpa.
