Seventeen-year old Gabriel Shull of State College was arrested this morning after robbing and assaulting a female pedestrian while brandishing a BB gun, according to police. Shull was charged as an adult with robbery, unlawful restraint, simple assault, possession of instruments of crime, and a minor drug charge.
Two police officers were on patrol on the 200 block of West College Avenue at 3 a.m. today when they heard a female screaming. When they got to the location, they saw Shull fleeing toward a car on the 100 block of Burrowes Street.

Concurrently, officers were sent to the scene of an armed robbery, for which the suspects were already arrested. According to police, Shull stopped the female and asked for directions. After she gave them, he asked her for money, and when she refused, he followed her. According to the release, Shull grabbed the victim and tried dragging her across Burrowes Street while holding the BB gun.
Shull is being held on $25,000 bail. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. Police ask witnesses to call the State College Police at 814-234-7150.
