Crime Details:On Tuesday night, April 7, 2009 between 2130 hrs and 2200 hrs, two juvenile female high school students were waiting for their ride in the Welch Pool parking lot after their lacrosse practice. At that time they observed an older model, white mini-van with tinted windows pull into the parking lot the wrong way. The vehicle driver honked the horn and parked the van near the two girls. A single white male operator exited the vehicle and approached the girls. The white male was described as being in his late 40’s or older, “scruffy looking,” thin build wearing a cowboy hat and bandana, with black jeans. The suspicious male had a strong “bad smoking odor.” The girls stated the male asked them about the Welch Pool and stated he would be arrested if he went in. He then started talking about being the messenger for the “real Zamboni,” and referred to the “Zamboni” as his master. The male said to the girls, “Jesus loves you and I love you,” and left without further incident. The girls were alarmed and described the male as “creepy.” Anyone with information is asked to contact the State College Police Department at (814) 234-7150 or the Centre County CRIMESTOPPERS 1-877-992-7463.
