    Updated:

    UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Penn State police planned to review security video for clues after a female student reported that two men forced her into a car then tried to sexually assault her before she escaped.

    Police say the woman reported the incident Tuesday, but claims it occurred about 1 a.m. Saturday as she walked on a campus road near Simmons Hall.

    The woman told police a man jumped out of the car, grabbed her and forced her into the vehicle. After driving a short distance, the woman says that man and another inside the car forced her outside, which is when they tried to sexually assault her.

     Instead, the woman told police she was instead able to push away one of the men and run away.

    Police Chief Tyrone Parham says the woman didn't suffer injuries requiring medical treatment.
