(HAMMOND) - An Ohio man is facing charges that he used a social networking web site to harass and intimidate a northwestern Indiana couple.

The federal indictment claims says 26-year-old Thomas Slapnicker of Mentor, Ohio, used a Myspace page and other sites to invite people to a woman's home in Lake Station, Indiana for sexual favors.

The indictment says that after the woman obtained a court order prohibiting Slapnicker from contacting her, he then used Myspace and other sites to make her boyfriend appear to be a racist pedophile.

Slapnicker is accused of making threatening phone calls and violating a protective order by interstate cyberstalking.

Authorities say he has been jailed since being arrested February 13th in Ohio. He will be transferred to Indiana for court hearings in Hammond.
