Update 6:22 p.m.: Penn State spokesperson Wyatt DuBois confirmed that the report of sexual assault is the result of a new allegation of abuse against Jerry Sandusky. The university’s investigation is ongoing.
Original story: Penn State Police received a report of sexual assault on Tuesday that resulted in four charges from incidents that allegedly occurred at Penn State football’s Lasch Building during the 2000s.
The reported assault allegedly happened sometime between June 1, 2000 and September 30, 2010 and involved an offender known by the victim, who was identified as a “visitor.” Charges include two attempts of rape and two statutory rape offenses.
The charges’ 36B sex offense classification indicates that the incidents involved non-forcible sexual intercourse with a person who is under the statutory age of consent.
No further details are available at this time. When contacted, Penn State Police and the university didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
In 2012, former Penn State football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was convicted on 45 counts of child abuse, some of which involved incidents at the Lasch Building during this period in the 2000s.
