The State College Police are investigating an incident that sent a parent and juvenile child to the hospital on Monday. 

Police were called at 5:49 p.m. on Monday to 670 Westerly Parkway, somewhere between Welch Pool and the South Building of State College Area High School, police said.

Charges may be filed, police said, and could not release further information regarding the nature of the incident, the extent of the injuries or the identities of the parent and child involved due to the ongoing investigation. 

Meanwhile, police in the Borough experienced a mild weekend in terms of citations issued and arrests made over the first Penn State football and holiday weekend. 

Between Friday evening and Sunday morning, a total of 213 calls came into the State College Police Department, 243 S. Allen St. Only two charges misdemeanors were filed and no felonies were filed, though pending investigations could lead to more charges being filed, police said.
