Penn State Police Seeking Information About Attempted Sexual Assault

by on September 01, 2014 3:15 PM

Penn State Police are looking for an unidentified male who was involved in an attempted sexual assault early Sunday morning.

An out-of-town female visitor was walking near Beaver Stadium late Saturday night when an unknown man approached her and asked if she was okay, according to a news release from the police department.

The man – who is described as a 19 or 20-year-old tall, skinny white male – then tried to take the victim’s clothes off. According to the release, she later woke up with her clothes off with no recollection of what happened, but the man was gone.

Penn State Police say the man may still pose a threat to the community and recommend using caution when travelling at night. Walking with a friend only in well-lit areas is recommended.

Police are continuing the investigation, and are seeking information from the public. You can submit information to the Centre County Crimestoppers by email at, which may lead to up to a $1,000 reward if the information leads to an arrest.
