Where Are They Now: Vairo Boulevard Stabber

Unfortunately for Penn State, no one knows what has happened to the man who stabbed a graduate student near Vairo Boulevard back on December 12. The man, who was described as 5’8″ and Caucasian, stabbed the woman in the throat on a bike trail.

The University police are handling the investigation, but have made little strides despite working over the holiday break. The police say that they are not aware if the attacker is still in the State College area.

The attack on the woman caused a panic among Penn State students, especially those who live around Vairo Boulevard. The often unreliable PSUTXT alerts told students around the area to stay indoors, but students never received another message that was safe to go back out.

So, the Vairo Boulevard stabber is still out there, which should be especially comforting for students considering the three armed men who robbed a jewelry store are still at large.

Stay safe, Penn State!
