Kidnapping reported near Simmons Hall

According to a Penn State news release and a PSUTXT, a Penn State student was reportedly kidnapped on Shortlidge Road near Simmons Hall on Saturday at about 1 a.m.

The victim reported that she was forced into the rear of a dark-colored sedan by an unknown white male, was taken south to College Avenue, and was forced out of the vehicle at an unknown location. The occupants of the sedan attempted to indecently assault the victim, but she escaped on foot.

The occupants are described as “college aged, white males of average height and weight, wearing dark, hooded sweatshirts and scarves covering their faces.”

According to the release, it can be assumed that conditions still exist that could pose a threat to the community. If you have helpful information, call Centre County Police at 814-863-1111. You can also use the Safe Walk Service at 814-865-WALK (9255).

“It is the duty of the institution to warn of possible ‘dangerous conditions’ on or near the campus, and at affiliate organizations off campus; an ‘affirmative duty’ exists to warn persons associated with this University of possible peril at the hands of some third party or parties,” the release explains.
