Facebook post leads to stalking charges


The Roxboro Police Department arrested a Roxboro man after a Thursday morning Facebook post alleges he sent unsolicited messages and pictures to over 120 women.

Thierry Randall Painter, 23, of 310 Reade Drive, Roxboro, has been charged with six counts of misdemeanor cyberstalking.

Painter was arrested Thursday at 5 p.m. and the first charge was taken out. Five more charges followed Friday.

The victim’s post says Painter sent her unsolicited messages and pictures for over two years and when he was blocked, he would just create another profile.

In an update four hours later, the victim updated the post saying that over 120 others have reached out about Painter, who goes by Kip.

The case is being investigated further by the Roxboro Police Department.
