Forcible Sex Offense Reported Near HHD Building
A forcible sex offense was reported to Penn State Police this morning at 10:37 a.m. The incident reportedly occurred Monday, March 2 at approximately 4:15 p.m. near the southwest corner of the Health and Human Development Building by the 200 block of East College Ave. A timely warning was sent at 1:57 p.m today.
According to the victim, an unidentified male pushed the female against a construction fence outside the building, and forcibly touched her neck, face, and chest. The suspect was in his late 20s or early 30s, about 6-foot-2, with dark hair and eyes. He was wearing a blue sweatshirt and blue jeans at the time of the incident.
This assault, the most recent in a string of many to occur over the past few months, is particularly notable and strange: not only did it occur in broad daylight, but also near one of the most populated streets in State College. With these conditions, there is a better chance that the incident may have witnesses who can step forward.
If you have any information regarding the incident or the suspect, please contact Penn State Police at (814) 863-1111.
