Antic involving unicorn mask and knife at Victoria cemetery not funny to police

VICTORIA — There are no such things as unicorns, but a 911 caller in Victoria was adamant that he saw a unicorn chasing a screaming man through a cemetery on Sunday night.  

Police say officers responding to the emergency call found a man wearing a unicorn mask waving a large black hunting knife as an apparently terrified victim tried to get away.

They say the second man attempted to get into his vehicle when officers approached cautiously and issued commands for the masked man to drop his weapon.

Police soon learned the supposed attacker and his buddy were making what was meant to be a funny video.

The two men in their 30s apologized for the unintended impact of their actions.

No charges are being laid.
