The University of Pittsburgh police confirmed that men who were accused of chasing a female student on campus were students of Denison University in Granville, Ohio, participating in a scavenger hunt.

The four out-of-town students, now banned from the University of Pittsburgh property, were encouraged to “scare someone” as part of an informal group’s game.
