TORONTO, Ont. – A report of an abduction at York University is false, Toronto police say.

Police said Thursday that the report turned out to be a prank after reviewing surveillance footage.

Officers were called to the Keele Campus following an eyewitness report that a person was forced into a van.

“Police have investigated the incident and spoken with the people involved,” police said.

“It has been revealed it was a prank played between the people involved.”

York University released a statement Thursday saying it had increased campus security following the report.

Police did not specify whether those involved will be punished.
