Robbery on S Atherton St


On February 5, 2013 the State College Police responded to a Robbery and Theft in progress at the Super 8 Motel located at 1663 South Atherton Street.

Upon arrival the suspect had fled the scene and the front desk clerk reported that the suspect approached him at the front desk and told him that a vending machine in the hotel was damaged. The clerk left the front desk unattended to check on the vending machine and the suspect then went behind the desk and removed money. The clerk returned and confronted the suspect and the suspect told him that he had a gun and fled the hotel running towards Atherton Street.

The suspect was a white male wearing black boots, jeans, a gray jacket, black hooded sweatshirt under the jacket pulled up over his head and a light colored faded baseball hat.

The State College Police then responded to a Burglary at Dunn Mowery Insurance and Benchmark Construction located at 1500 South Atherton Street that had occurred earlier in the morning. It was determined that the suspect from the Super 8 Robbery was also involved in the Burglary. The office building had been entered and several items were removed from the building.

The suspect was last identified in the area of the Ramada south parking lot.

Anyone with information on the Robbery and Burglary or anyone who can identify the suspect is asked to call the State College Police at 814-234-7150. Anonymous tips can be submitted through the web.
