The State College Police are searching for two suspects in unrelated cases, one being an indecent exposure incident and another an assault that landed a woman in the hospital. 

Police said they are investigating an indecent exposure that occurred sometime between 5:30 and 6:03 p.m. Monday, July 2 at Schlow Memorial Library, 211 South Allen St.

The incident involved a juvenile female victim who had been browsing the Young Adult section of the library, which is on the second floor and in the southwest corner of the building. The young female was assailed by the suspect, a white male, exposed himself to her and masturbated in front of her before leaving the library at 6:03 p.m., heading south on Allen Street.

The man is described as between 40 and 50 years old, is balding with very short or shaven hair, has thin build and was wearing a light blue polo shirt and green or tan cargo shorts.

Police ask that the public view the photos captured on surveillance camera and if anyone can identify the suspect male depicted in the images above or has any information pertaining to this incident, please contact State College Police at 814-234-7150, call Centre CountyCRIMESTOPPERS at 1-877-992-7463, or submit an anonymous tip through the web.

Police are also investigating an assault that was reported at 12:37 a.m. Wednesday and occurred somewhere on the 100 block of Heister Street. 

According to police, a man walked up to another man and a woman who were talking. The man, now suspect, interjected himself into the conversation and punched the man who had been talking to the woman. 

When the suspect attempted to hit the man again, he missed and instead, struck the female in the nose. 

She was transported to Mount Nittany Medical Center for treatment, police said, but could not give an estimate of her condition or severity of the injury. 

Police could not say if either man was harmed in the incident or give any identifying information on either of the victims. 

The suspect is described as a white male, about 5' 6", with short dark hair and tattoos. Anyone with information is asked to contact police.

Meanwhile, police said Fourth of July was relatively quiet, orderly and did not solicit many phone calls to law enforcement or otherwise.
