SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a metro Savannah man who dressed as a Ninja to rob a pizza store has been convicted of armed robbery and assault charges.

The Savannah Morning News reports (http://bit.ly/1MWEtm5) that a Chatham County jury on Tuesday found 21-year-old Benjamin John Scott guilty of robbing a Garden City Domino’s Pizza clerk of $1,000 in June 2014.

Jurors convicted the Garden City man of assaulting the clerk with a blunt object.

Assistant District Attorney Matthew Breedon told jurors that the Ninja costume didn’t work, since the clerk recognized the suspect’s voice because he had worked at the Domino’s outlet before robbing it.

Breedon said Scott admitted he had been the bandit but insisted he did not mean to injure the clerk.

Garden City is about five miles northwest of downtown Savannah.
