Police: Man Dressed As Ninja And Brutally Attacked Ex Boss

Posted: Updated:
DELAWARE COUNTY, Pa. -

Police say they've tracked down and arrested a man dressed as a ninja to pull off a brutal attack in Delaware County.

According to authorities, 29-year-old Michael Norley Jr. allegedly dressed up like a ninja and hid out in the woods Tuesday morning before he brutally attack his ex boss with a ball-peen hammer.

"The attack was just one of the worst I've seen, an absolutely brutal attack,” said Upper Providence Police Chief David Montella.

It happened in the 300 block of Sycamore Mills Road in Upper Providence just after 8 a.m. Police say the 57-year-old victim was taking out his trash when he noticed someone in the woods dressed all in black with a mask. Within seconds he was being viciously beaten, according to police.

“He has multiple blunt force injuries around his head. His ear was lacerated substantially, almost torn completely off,” said Chief Montella.

The victim knocked Norley's mask off with a kick and recognized him as a former employee. Norley fled the scene. A nearby middle school went into lockdown as investigators tried to track Norley down. Hours later, he was arrested at his home in Lititz. Police say this was a targeted attack.

Neighbors in this quiet community were stunned to say the least.

Norley was ordered to be held on half a million dollars bail.
