SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Six college students are accused of breaking into SeaWorld in San Antonio, Texas as part of a fraternity initiation, police say, reports CBS affiliate KENS.

The male students allegedly scaled the walls of the theme park just after 2 a.m. on Wednesday March 12, police investigators said.

The intruders were spotted by park security, who then called San Antonio police. Officers chased after the suspects and eventually caught two of them, reports the station.

San Antonio police identified them as Duc Nguyen, 23, and Huy Mai, 18. Four others remain at-large. They all face charges of criminal trespassing.

According to the police report, the Houston-area suspects drove to San Antonio to take photos with SeaWorld animals after hours. Mai reportedly told police they were not staying in the area and planned to drive back to Houston following the stunt.

SeaWorld officials said none of the animals were injured, but police allege the men did break into a storage area and take ice cream, according to KENS.

The University of Houston confirmed Nguyen is a registered student at the school.
