Police in Anchorage, Alaska, are asking for help in finding … a ninja?

A person dressed head-to-toe in ninja gear broke into Bosco’s, a comic book store, on Friday after it was closed, according to

The intruder slinked around the place before stealing a katana sword, a key part in any aspiring ninja’s arsenal.

The break-in was caught on surveillance camera, but the ninja is still at large,according to staff member Eric Helmick.

Helmick told local station KTVA that he and other employees are still checking inventory.

“The sword was the only thing we could make out well enough on the video to say for sure” was stolen, he told the station.

The business released a surveillance video in hopes someone will recognize the ninja.

The thief may have gotten away with the crime for now, but he may have proven himself to be a very bad ninja, since ninjas, by definition, aren’t supposed to be seen.

Others griped about the ninja’s skills at KTVA’s Facebook page:

Anyone who might know this ninja is asked to contact Anchorage police at 907-786-8900.

Here’s one last look:
