HARRISBURG, Pa. -- A Penn State assistant football coach says he believes he saw former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky sexually molesting a boy and later told coach Joe Paterno and two Penn State officials about it.

Mike McQueary testified Friday that he truly believes what he saw in a Penn State locker room in 2002 was intercourse between Sandusky and a 10- or 12-year-old boy.

He also says he reported it to coach Joe Paterno the next day, and later talked to administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz.

He says he told them he saw something "extremely sexual." He says he told them he thought that some kind of intercourse was going on.

When asked why he didn’t go to police, McQueary referenced Schultz’s position as a vice president who had overseen the campus police.
