Local News

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (WTAJ) — This afternoon, the State College Police Department identified seven individuals involved in an event that resulted in one woman unconscious and alone on a sidewalk.

The incident occurred on Halloween weekend.

“Our detectives determined that she was at an event at 329 East Prospect Avenue. They were able to obtain video from that event inside the house and determined that this female actually did enter this residence under her own will,” says Lieutenant Gregory Brauser.

During the time she was inside the residence, Lieutenant Brauser says she became unconscious.

“She’s seen on the video being carried around unconscious within the house and then eventually being carried out of the house still unconscious and unresponsive.” 

He says she was then placed on the sidewalk of an adjacent property, still unconscious.

Temperatures that night went as low as 36 degrees.

When she was found, she was transported to Mount Nittany Medical Center, where she recovered.

This morning, State College Police asked the public for their help in identifying seven individuals who were seen on camera carrying the female outside of the residence.

As of 3:30 this afternoon, they’ve all been identified.

“Our investigators would like to talk to them to find out what exactly did happen that night,” says Lieutenant Brauser. “This is an active criminal investigation that could result in no charges or multiple charges.” 

Police report in 2020, cases of sexual misconduct, hazing, and COVID-19 violations have been reported at the residence, which resulted in a formal warning from Penn State and State College Borough officials, urging the community to not affiliate with those living on the property.

Anyone with more information on this case should notify police.
