TORONTO, Aug. 4 (UPI) — Police in Canada shared that an alert about a man with a gun turned out to be a case of mistaken identity.

Toronto police tweeted an update about a man with a gun on Friday night, as they reported police were on the scene with no injuries.

The post was updated about eight minutes later as police reported that the “man” was actually a cardboard cutout of Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s character from “Terminator.”

“Grange Ave and Augusta Ave police on scene have located a Terminator cutout holding a gun,” they wrote.

Police poked some fun at the situation by ending the post with the hashtag #IllBeBack.
