    The robbery suspect wore a unicorn costume, and police in Maryland say he has been unmasked.

    News outlets report that Baltimore County police say 28-year-old Jacob William Rogge donned a pink-and-white unicorn costume and smashed a convenience store register with a crowbar Saturday. Police say 27-year-old Joseph Philip Svezzese drove Rogge, who fled with cash and cigarettes from High's Dairy Store.

    The pair's car crossed into oncoming traffic and crashed into mailboxes, a utility pole, shrubbery and a boulder, which sent the car back across the road until it hit a tree. Both men were hospitalized with serious injuries.

    Svezzese was treated and released, but Rogge remains hospitalized in serious condition. Court records didn't list lawyers for them.
