A LaGrange man is wanted by police after he posted nude photos of his ex-girlfriend on social media, according to LaGrange police.

The woman contacted police Wednesday after a family member called her and told her the photos of her were on Facebook.

The man has also harassed the woman, coming to her home and place of work, the victim told police.

The victim said in a statement to an officer that the two dated for about three months, and after they broke up, he continued to call her regularly and come by her house. The man allegedly called the woman and left a voice mail threatening to “make her life a living hell” because she did not want to be in a relationship with him, according to the police report.

Officers drew up warrants charging the man with stalking and disturbing obscene material.
