College report similar to PSU kidnap claim
February 6, 2014
COLLEGE (AP) — State College police say they've received an attempted abduction
report from a woman that is similar to a report made by a female student on
Penn State's main campus last month.
College police tell the Centre Daily Times the latest incident happened about 1
a.m. Saturday when a car pulled up to a woman and its passenger tried to speak
with her. The man persisted even after the woman ignored him, at which point he
got out of the car and grabbed her arm, before she broke free and ran home.
State police Chief Tyrone Parham says there are no new leads in a similar
incident on campus Jan. 25, also about 1 a.m.
woman claimed she was forced into a car and later tried to sexually assault her
before she also ran away.
