State College police have secured a video of the weekend assault at Hiester Street and East Calder Way, they said Tuesday.

The 28-year-old victim in the attack, who was found unconscious early Saturday, is now in stable condition and recovering, according to a news release Tuesday afternoon. He is from New York.

Police said the assault happened at 2:11 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot at the Hiester-Calder intersection. There, according to the release, the 28-year-old was attacked by two men.

An earlier description of the two suspect was incorrect, police noted, citing the video, witness descriptions and still images of the apparent assailants.

According to the Tuesday release, the first suspect is now identified as a lighter-skinned Hispanic man who appears to be about six feet tall. He has a thin build and very short dark hair, and was wearing dark-colored pants with a long-sleeve black shirt, the latest description shows.

The second suspect is now identified as a black man with a stocky build and standing about five feet 10 inches to six feet tall. He was wearing a dark-colored, button-up shirt with a white tank top underneath; jeans; and dress shoes, according to the updated description.

Police said both suspects are described as being in their 20s. Images of the suspects provided by the police department are posted in the gallery to the right.

The department is asking any witnesses -- and anyone else who can identify the suspects -- to call police at (814) 234-7150 or to submit an anonymous tip through the borough website.

Tipsters also may call Centre County Crimestoppers at (877) 992-7463. Callers may remain anonymous, and a reward is being offered for information in the case, police noted.
