A Penn State University student told PSU police they were assaulted and robbed Sunday by an unknown male at the Nittany Apartments complex, according to a university timely warning.

“It can be assumed that conditions continue to exist that may pose a threat to members and guests of the university community,” the warning said.

The alleged robbery occurred around 8:15 p.m.

It was the third timely warning of the semester. The previous two were sexual assaults.

According to Penn State police’s website, timely warning notifications are required by the Clery Act required and are sent to the entire university community to make them aware of a potential or ongoing threat of a Clery reportable offense.
