On 12/5/2015 at 1241 A.M. a college aged female was walking eastbound on the 700 block of East Foster Avenue. As she was walking a thin black male walking westbound on East Foster Avenue bumped into her and then grabbed her arms. The male attempted to sexually assault the woman on the sidewalk of the 700 block of East Foster Avenue until someone from a near- by building opened a door. The sound of the door opening caused the suspect to stop assaulting the victim and flee the area. The suspect was last seen running towards the downtown area.
The suspect is described as a college aged, black male. He is approximately 5'9" tall and described as "skinny." He did not have any facial hair and described as having a thin face. The suspect was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.
We are urging anyone who may have information regarding this incident to contact the State College Police Department at (814) 234-7150, by email or submit an anonymous tip through our website.
