PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The University of Pittsburgh’s police department is warning its campus community about a suspicious man who has been hanging out in the Oakland area.
The man Pitt campus police sent out a warning about is Daniel Dintino. There have been several complaints about his behavior.
According to police, he approaches women on or near campus and makes them feel uncomfortable.
Police have not revealed his specific action, and that has at least one student, who only wants to be called Gretchen, a little concerned.
“That’s definitely worrying. I’m glad they’re telling people and getting it out there and making people aware of it. It’s a freaky thing to happen,” she said.
On a campus the size of Pitt, Dintino countless possible victims, but student, Courtney Legters, says she has no worries.
“I feel pretty safe on this campus, usually there are police everywhere. I think I’m okay,” she said.
Meantime, Dintino was arrested by campus police on Dec. 4 for an outstanding warrant in Ross Township, and he was issued property warnings for the entire campus. He was released from jail and is apparently is back in the Oakland area.
