STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — A central Pennsylvania police chief says his department did not receive reports from a then-Penn State graduate assistant related to an allegation of child sexual abuse against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

Mike McQueary wrote in an email to a friend that was made available to The Associated Press that he had discussions with police about the 2002 allegation in the team showers. McQueary testified in a grand jury investigation that led to authorities charging Sandusky with abusing eight boys over 15 years.

In the email, McQueary did not specify which police department he spoke to.

Borough police chief Tom King said Wednesday that McQueary didn’t make a report to his department.

The university also has its own police force. Penn State administrators said they were looking into whether McQueary contacted campus police.
