SAN ANTONIO -- The Penn State sexual abuse scandal may have a local connection.

Penn State's former defensive coordinator, Jerry Sandusky, is accused of having inappropriate contact with young boys. Some of the alleged victims were as young as 8 and 10 years old.

Now, the San Antonio Police Department is looking to see if they have a case in San Antonio.

"We are investigating the possibility that an offense may have happened while here in San Antonio," SAPD's Sgt. Chris Benavides said.

The Bexar County District Attorney's Office and SAPD are looking into an alleged incident back in 1999 that reportedly happened in San Antonio.

The San Antonio connection involves the 1999 Alamo Bowl when Penn State went up against Texas A&M.

The grand jury indictment, alleges Sandusky brought a young boy to San Antonio to attend the Alamo Bowl. He is identified as "Victim 4."

Sandusky reportedly threatened to send the victim home if he didn't cooperate with the illegal activity.

Sandusky is also accused of giving Victim 4 gifts, clothing, and passes to various sporting events.

Sandusky allegedly guaranteed Victim 4 he could be a walk-on player at Penn State.

If Victim 4 is alleging he was assaulted here in San Antonio, local police want to know if they can bring up charges here.
