Possible 9th victim contacts cops in Sandusky case

MONTOURSVILLE, Pa. - A state police criminal investigator says another potential victim has contacted authorities in the child sexual abuse investigation of former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

Lt. David Young, who commands the criminal investigation section at the Montoursville-based station, said Tuesday the man, now an adult, contacted the department on Sunday after seeing media accounts of Sandusky's arrest.

Young says investigators took a statement from him and forwarded it to the Rockview station.

The new victim was first reported by The Patriot-News of Harrisburg, which said the man is in his 20s, knew Sandusky from The Second Mile charity and had never told his parents or authorities about the alleged incidents from about a decade ago.

Young isn't releasing details about what the man claims occurred.
