SAN ANTONIO -- Five men, believed to be college students, scaled the walls of SeaWorld San Antonio early Wednesday morning looking for adventure, but instead they found the police.
SAPD investigators said five unidentified males in their 20s broke into SeaWorld San Antonio just after 2 a.m.
It’s believed they were carrying out a prank that could be connected to the park’s animals. However, SAPD investigators said they could only prove the men broke into a storage area and ate ice cream.
SeaWorld officials said the park did not find any animals harmed Wednesday morning.
The men were spotted by park security, who then called San Antonio police. Officers chased after the five intruders. Police said they caught two of the men.
San Antonio police identified the apprehended suspects as Duc Nguyen, 23, and Huy Mai, 18. Three other males remain at-large.
They all face charges of criminal trespassing.
Investigators said the two men in custody claimed to be fraternity brothers from Houston. The University of Houston confirmed Wednesday Nguyen is a registered student at the school.
SeaWorld released the following statement:
“SeaWorld is working with San Antonio law enforcement to investigate individuals who were unlawfully trespassing early this morning. San Antonio Police Department has custody of two individuals, and SeaWorld has not found any animals harmed as a result of this morning's event.”
