Penn State University police issued a warning Friday of possible dangerous conditions on campus after a series of sexual assaults were reported. According to police, a person reported indecent assaults that happened between Jan. 6, 2018, and April 11, 2019, at the Lasch Building in which a known student inappropriately touched other students. Now, police are warning people to trust their instincts and be extra cautious as sexual assault perpetrators tend to seek out the vulnerable. If you feel unsafe, get to a safe place and then call for help, they say. Police said in the warning that it can be assumed that conditions continue to exist that may pose a threat to members and guests of the university community, and it's their duty to warn people of possible peril. Sexual assault is a second-degree felony in Pennsylvania and can include up to 10 years in prison, fines and psychiatric treatment.
