A university spokesperson told the network a report was filed last month with campus police. The report said a visitor was "sexually assaulted by a known person” at the Lasch Football Building between June 2000 and September 2010.
"This incident report is the result of the university's internal and external reporting procedures upon receipt of a new allegation of abuse by Jerry Sandusky," the university spokesperson said. "An investigation is ongoing and we have no further comment."
Al Lindsay, Sandusky's attorney, told CNN they do not know what the new allegations are about.
