Police state two young women dressed as ninjas invaded a West Jordan, Utah, home early Friday morning, claiming they were the wives of the uncle of a child living there.
Law enforcement said the uncle is in jail for allegedly sexually abusing the child and asserted they do not think the women and the uncle belong to a polygamist church.
Police Sgt. Dan Roberts stated that the two women, aged 18 and 22, invaded the home just before 4 a.m., equipped with knives and a stun gun. They allegedly assaulted two adults in the home, but the homeowner managed to subdue one attacker without using any weapon, then subdued the second woman, who had a stun gun, by using a ninja sword.
The women were held until police arrived; no one was injured. Roberts confirmed that the residents of the home and the women were all part of an extended family.
