Police on the Lookout After Indecent Exposure Incidents

Two exposure incidents last week have University Park police placing older indecent exposure cases at the top of their list. A man, described as college-aged with light-skinned with dark hair, wearing a ski mask, exposed himself at around 3 a.m. in the Food Sciences building on November 1, and a man of similar description flashed a female student around 11:30 p.m. on November 4 inside the Patterson Building. These come on the heels of an equally-perverted crime in Simmons Hall, where a man was videotaping girls showering.

Eleven similar occurrences have been reported since August 2009. The police suspect it might be one perpetrator (since all the men have been described generally the same), but aren’t ruling out the possibility of “copycat” crimes. Several off-campus exposures by a masked man have been reported as well in Nittany Garden Apartments and Imperial Towers Apartments, as the Collegian reported.

University Park police are offering a $1,000 reward to anyone with information that might to the capture of the pervert(s). To share what you know, you can call 814-863-1111 or Centre County Crime Stoppers at 1-877-99-CRIME. Police also recommend that residents lock their doors, stay in well-light areas, don’t let others “piggyback” into their dorm or apartment, and don’t walk alone. You can always call 814-865-WALK, the Security Escort Service.

Kiwi Fro-Yo Comes to Penn State

The Kiwi Yogurt chain is opening its newest store right here in State College, next to the Student Book Store at 324 E. College Ave, this February (no word yet on exact date). Kiwi is a Maine Line, Pa.-based, family-owned company founded in 2008 set on providing “the ultimate dessert experience.”

And it is quite the experience. When you walk in, there is – prepare yourselves – a wall of frozen yogurt options. You get to walk up to this beautiful wall and vend yourself as many flavors as you like.
