Just after midnight Sept. 19th an unidentified Army staff sergeant was smoking a cigarette on break at Iyokern Airfield, near Bakersfield, California when a man “in full ninja garb” approached the staff sergeant, asking if he knew him. The staff sergeant, a member of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, replied “No” to the masked man who was wielding a katana like sword. He followed up with “Do you know where my family is?” to which the staff sergeant also responded negatively. The ninja then proceeded to attack the staff sergeant striking his phone, knee and leg using the blade. After a brief chase, the staff sergeant managed to evade the ninja in an administrative building where another Night Stalker immediately began emergency procedures. After using a chunk of asphalt to break a window in the building the two were in the ninja fled on foot where he was soon arrested by local authorities.
