LOVELAND, Ohio -- Long ago, in the '70s, men spoke of a legendary creature inhabiting the Little Miami River.

Now a couple playing "Pokemon Go" may have stumbled across the same creature, the Loveland Frogman.

The story goes: two different police officers spotted the Frogman on two different nights in the March of 1972, according to

UPDATE: Officer who shot Loveland Frogman in 1972 says story is a hoax

Wednesday night, Sam Jacobs and his girlfriend were playing "Pokemon Go" between Loveland Madeira Road and Lake Isabella. Then a night of fun turned into a chilling tale of horror; that was when they encountered the purported Frogman:

"We saw a huge frog near the water," Jacobs wrote in an email. "Not in the game, this was an actual giant frog."

Jacobs stopped playing Pokemon Go so he could document what he was seeing, snapping some photos and shooting a short video.

"Then the thing stood up and walked on its hind legs. I realize this sounds crazy, but I swear on my grandmother's grave this is the truth," he wrote. "The frog stood about 4 feet tall."

When they returned to Jacobs' girlfriend's home, her parents told them about the legend of the Frogman.

So was it the legendary Frogman? Or just a big frog? Jacobs wasn't sure.

"Either way, I've never seen anything like it," he concluded.
