Unidentified Person Defecates In Findlay Commons

On October 21, mischief struck the second floor of Findlay Commons.  A man swiped a container from the dining commons and proceeded to defecate inside of it.

This occurred at 1:45 p.m. on that Saturday, according to security footage. The image of the unidentified male was captured on said footage and can be seen below.

Weird crimes occur at Penn State all of the time, but this might be one of the stranger ones.

If you have any information about the identity of this person, contact University Police at (814) 863-1111, or submit an anonymous tip at
