'Victim 6' sues Sandusky, Penn State, Second Mile Girl Scouts robbed of $20
HARRISBURG -- One of the young men who testified against Jerry Sandusky last summer is suing the former assistant coach, Penn State and the charity for young people that Sandusky started.
"Victim 6" sued Tuesday in federal court in Philadelphia, claiming Sandusky's behavior was "ratified" by The Second Mile and Penn State and that the organizations acted with reckless indifference to his rights.
Sandusky is serving a lengthy state prison term after being convicted of sexual abuse of Victim 6 and nine other boys.
Victim 6 testified that Sandusky, calling himself "the Tickle Monster," grabbed him inside a university shower in March 1998. His mother's complaint triggered a police investigation but no charges.
BERWYN -- Police are investigating the strong-arm robbery of Girl Scouts who were selling cookies at a Pennsylvania supermarket.
The theft happened at a Pathmark store in Tredyffrin Township, outside Philadelphia, around 5 p.m. Sunday.
WPVI-TV reports the thief reached into a cash box containing the scouts' cookie money. He got $20 before the girls closed the box. Police say the suspect then fled to the back of the building and drove off.
