Assault Reported Downtown Early Sunday Morning
State College Police were notified of and dispatched to a fight happening near the intersection of Garner Street and Calder Way at 3:14 a.m. on Sunday. A shirtless white male was found bleeding from his facial area and told the officers he had been in a fight with another individual who is currently unknown.
After the initial fight in the middle of South Garner Street, a third male, also unknown, knocked the victim unconscious with a punch after approaching him from behind. Both suspects fled the scene before SCPD arrived. Due to the severity of the injuries, EMS was called and the victim was brought to Mount Nittany Medical Center and treated for facial fractures.
Witnesses described the man from the latter event that left the victim unconscious as “a white male with a red beard, glasses, wearing a dark blue buttoned shirt, blue jeans and a black baseball style cap on backwards.” The puncher fled in a black Ford F-150 pickup and went north on Hiester Street and then west on College Avenue after entering the vehicle’s passenger seat outside Chipotle.
Police are still trying to identify the involved parties. If you have any information about the incidents or suspects, please call State College Police at 814-234-7150 or submit an anonymous tip.
