Attempted Sexual Assault
On 7/23/2018 the State College Police Department received a report of an attempted indecent assault on the 200 block of West Foster Avenue. The attempted assault occurred between 10:00 and 11:00 PM.
A college-aged, female reported that she was walking by herself on Foster Avenue when she was approached by a college-aged white male walking in the opposite direction. As this male walked past the victim, he grabbed her arms and pushed her towards some bushes along the sidewalk.

The victim was able to defend herself and escape from the male and the victim fled the area to contact police.
