A Youtube video has made a star of a sword swinging vigilante who broke up a fight on a light rail train in Phoenix recently.

The Oct. 13 video shot by a passenger on the train shows two men punching and kicking another with onlookers in the background, said ABC 15.

Suddenly, one bystander pulls a sword from his bag and chases the two aggressors off the train.

His poise was reminiscent of a ninja movie.

The incident is under investigation by Valley Metro Rail and local police, reported Newser.
