A man dressed up in a unicorn costume in order to rob a Baltimore area convenience store and was arrested soon after the armed robbery. He had an accomplice that was with him, as well.
Jacob William Rogge, 28, and Joseph Philip Svezzese, 27, were charged with armed robbery of a convenience store. Rogge donned a full-body pink and white unicorn costume, while wielding a crowbar to smash open the cash register.
Police were quickly called to the scene and found the discarded costume, which was taken into custody as evidence.
Rogge fled the scene with cash and cigarettes, along with his accomplice. Their car crossed the street into oncoming traffic, crashed into mailboxes, a utility pole, landscaping, and sent the car back across the main row where it came to a stop after hitting a tree. The two were first taken to an area hospital with serious injuries before being taken into custody.
Both men are now charged with armed robbery, robbery and theft. Rogge is additionally being charged with first and second-degree assault and destruction of property.
This goes against everything we believe unicorns stand for, but we sure bet it was a sight to see a grown man robbing a store in a unicorn costume! Too bad his magic didn’t last.
