When people talk about "getting medieval," this probably isn't what they had in mind.

State College police reported that a metal knight statue, similar to the one pictured above, was stolen from a downtown storefront.

According to the press release, a white male was seen taking the statue at around 11 a.m. on Nov. 12 from Gift Adventures.

The retail store is located at 137 E. Beaver Ave., and the alleged thief was seen carrying the statue to a nearby vehicle parked on South Pugh Street.

"Anyone who may have seen a statue like this in the area is encouraged to call the State College Police," the press release said.

Police ask that anyone who has any information on the incident or can identify the suspect contact them via phone at 814-234-7150, by e-mail, or by submitting an anonymous tip through their website.

If you see a man walking down the street in a suit of armor wielding a sword or mace, you just might have spotted the culprit.
