A man was arrested and charged for allegedly cyberstalking a UNF student and using her pictures to create fake social media accounts, according to the Jacksonville’s Sheriff’s Office.

The UNF student, contacted the police after finding out about false Instagram and Tinder accounts made with pictures taken from her own Facebook along with photos of women in underwear and other inappropriate content according to JSO. Instagram closed the accounts but Tinder would not do so until they saw a police report.

The accounts advertised sexual activity only after clients sent in gifts and “tributes” to a specified mailing address.

The suspect, Dylan Strickland, is a freshman at UNF with a major in computing. He was charged with “aggravated stalking with credible threat to life or injury,” according to the county court records. His bond is set at $50,003 and he cannot use the internet or contact the victim. His court arraignment date is set for May 24, 2017.
