State College police have charged a Bellefonte man for making a false robbery report to authorities in October, according to a press release.
Police say 40-year-old Brooks Shay faces charges of making false alarms to agencies of public safety and filing a false report with law enforcement, according to online court documents.
On Oct. 31, authorities responded to the area of the 100 block of North Atherton Street for a report of an armed robbery at the Fullington bus station, in which a clerk was reportedly injured.
The response by law enforcement promoted a campus-wide alert to the Penn State community.
Authorities say Shay has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Jan. 19.
