An attempted sexual assault was reported to Penn State police Sunday morning, according to a crime alert on Penn State’s website.
The assault was reported to have happened some time between 11:41 p.m. Saturday and 1:02 a.m. Sunday somewhere between Medlar Field and Beaver Stadium near the intersection of Porter Road and Curtin Road.
The suspect was described as a tall, slender white male between 19 and 20 years old. The suspect wore a dark-colored striped shirt with a breast pocket on the right side.
The victim said she was visiting when she was approached by the suspect, who asked if she was all right and then attempted to remove her clothes. She said she woke up with her clothes off and ran toward State College, but did not know what happened or where the suspect was when she awoke.
Penn State police said in the alert to use a buddy system when walking late at night and to walk in well-lit areas. Students may call the Safe Walk Service, in which a uniformed student division of Penn State police walks students and employees from on-campus locations to others, at 865-9255. The service is available year-round from dusk to dawn.
Penn State police ask that anyone with information that could aid the investigation call 814-863-1111 or anonymously make a report on police.psu.edu.
