A man in a ninja costume injured two police officers with a sword on Thursday in France's northwestern town of Cherbourg, APA reports citing France Bleu.
The incident took place when two officers tried to detain a man suspected of carjacking. The man, dressed as a ninja with a sword in his hands, got out of the car and attacked the officers.
A third officer, who was in a police car, opened fire on the attacker and gravely wounded him.
Both injured police officers were hospitalised.
A photo presumably taken at the scene of the attack was shared on Twitter.
