From Daily Star:
Officers were called to the property after reports of a fire but when they arrived the residents admitted they had actually called because of the strange activities happening inside.
They claimed objects had begun floating and moving.
Video of the alleged poltergeist has been published online.
In the clip a light fitting seems to sway all by itself before a broom in the corner moves.
Objects on the kitchen counters including a frying pan then move before a cupboard door flies open.
Finally, a bucket flings itself across the floor.
While the authenticity of the video cannot be guaranteed, officers who were called to the house in Puerto Montt, Chile, claimed they were attacked by a knife that jumped out of nowhere.
"In a surprising way, a spatula fell, there were several broken glasses, mattresses outside," Corporal Olavarria of the Sixth Police Station told local media.
"When I called the devil to leave the place, I was going out the front door, I felt a knife that grazed my back, but I had a bulletproof vest," he added.
The terrified occupants were offered somewhere to stay on Sunday night by the local authorities.
