Jerry Sandusky Scandal

Penn State police send report of 2000 indecent assault to attorney general

Penn State police have referred a reported incident of an indecent assault “by a known individual” from the summer of 2000 to the Attorney General’s Office, Chief Tyrone Parham said Sunday.

The report was made to university police on Wednesday from someone who was a visitor to the outdoor swimming pool building sometime between June 1 and Aug. 30, 2000. The incident was listed on the Penn State police daily incident log on Thursday.

Parham couldn’t say if the person called “a known individual” on the log was Jerry Sandusky, the former Nittany Lions defensive coordinator who’s been charged with 40 counts of child sex abuse after a two-year investigation by the Attorney General’s Office.

Parham said he couldn’t provide any further details about the victim.
