Midvale  — Police are searching for a woman who dressed as a Ninja Turtle and robbed a Super 8 motel overnight.

Lt. John Barker of the Unified Police Department said the woman is in her early- to mid-20s. She was dressed in all green with a black mask covering her eyes and wearing green face paint, reported KSL.

Barker said the woman walked into the Super 8 Motel at 7048 S. 900 East just before midnight. She pulled out a pocket knife and demanded money from the clerk behind the reservation desk, he said.

The robber fled with some cash, and witnesses saw a car leaving the area at the same time.

“We are unsure if she got in the car or left on foot,” Barker said.

He said no one was injured and investigators are not sure how much money the robber got. They are checking surveillance video to get a clearer look at her.
