Framingham State University Police said this week they received reports of a man approaching females telling them he was doing a scavenger hunt. He asked the women to kiss him and sign a sheet of paper, so he could earn points in the scavenger hunt.
The case of the umbrella-less walkers.
I don't know what's stranger: or the fact that that the complaintant stewed over this bit of "suspicious" activity for six hours before deciding to call Westwood police.

Four people were arrested for stealing from clothing donation bins in two separate incidents this week: one in Shrewsbury, and the other in Westborough.
Two men accused of stealing donated clothing from the Society of St. Vincent de Paul box in Westborough found themselves wearing handcuffs Wednesday night. The men reportedly did the same thing last month, and also in October 2011.
On Monday, two different men were charged with stealing from a clothing donation bin in Shrewsbury. One of the men was actually arrested while in the bin.
Police say clothing donation thefts are on the rise, and thieves are selling the clothes in bulk for a per-pound price.
