The State College Police Department said Tuesday afternoon that video evidence of a reported robbery earlier in the day disputed what the victim initially told police.

A female employee told police she was in the parking lot of the Uni-Mart when an unknown male with scruffy clothes approached her, police said. the employee said the man took a bag of money from her and cut her, giving her superficial injuries, police said.

Video evidence obtained by police disputed the victim's account, police said in a press release. The video shows the victim in the lot alone and does not show a robbery occurring, according to the release.
