Sexual Assault Reported At Movin’ On

A sexual assault was reported at Movin’ On tonight, according to a timely warning announcement from Penn State Police. A female student was allegedly touched inappropriately by a male at the Intramural Field. The assault, which she says happened between 8:45 and 8:50 p.m., was reported to police just five minutes later.

The victim described the assailant as a six-foot tall white male, between 18 and 22 years old, with a “thin build with a long face wearing a black baseball style hat,” according to the forcible sex offense report. The assault allegedly took place toward the conclusion of Big Sean’s set at the end-of-semester music festival.

Police reported the assault at around 10:25 p.m. and could not provide any additional information on the incident. If you have any information on the sexual assault, you can call university police at 814-863-1111. Police ask that all suspicious people, vehicles, or activities are reported immediately.
