Police Seeking Help Identifying Vehicle Driver Linked To Armed Robbery

State College police are asking for help identifying the owner or operator of a vehicle potentially linked to Sunday’s armed robbery in the borough.

Through a media release, police provided a few photographs of the vehicle in question, which was seen near where the armed robbery occurred at the Fullington bus depot at 152 N. Atherton Street.

The suspect was described as a 6-foot to 6-foot-1 Black male in his 30s or 40s weighing approximately 240 pounds. He had a salt-and-pepper beard that was mostly covered with a black disposable mask, and the whites of his eyes were “jaundiced,” according to police.

The suspect was last seen wearing a black hoodie with white lettering with the hood up and zipped to his chin.

Because of the bus terminal’s proximity to campus, Penn State issued emergency alerts shortly after the incident. The first, issued at 3:08 p.m., advised the community to seek shelter. The university issued an “all clear” around 5:30 p.m. once State College police concluded the suspect had fled.

“The surrounding area was thoroughly searched and there is no evidence to believe the suspect is still in the area,” a police statement read.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact State College police by calling the department at (814) 234-7150, sending an email, or submitting an anonymous tip online.
