Freedom man accused of creating harassment website
NEW SEWICKLEY TWP. – Freedom man accused of creating his own website to harass, threaten and create sexual images of a minor and his family.
According to court documents, on April 13, 2021, the New Sewickley Township Police Department was informed that Dylan Terreri, 47, had created the website, which was found through an online search engine.
Police say that on the website there was lewd, lustful, threatening and obscene language describing family members, as well as derogatory, threatening and sexual statements about the minor.
Court documents further state that the website portrays family names, road name, house number and the county in which they live.
When questioned by police, Terreri told them he set up the website to document what happened to him regarding the family who reported incidents against him to police, court documents show.
Police determined that the domain name registration for the website was purchased by Terreri on August 28, 2020.
A bullying protection order was issued against Terreri for the safety of the minor on April 21, 2021.
However, according to court documents, on November 4, 2021, Terreri walked down the road in front of the family residence, “pushing his hips” past the residence.
He also reportedly sent messages about the minor to their employer on September 6, 2020.
Terreri is charged with two counts each of disseminating explicit sexual material with a minor, harassment and criminal harassment, one count each of cyberstalking a child, unlawful contact with a minor and violating an order or of an agreement.
Efforts to reach Terreri’s private attorney, Ryan Mergl, failed before the print deadline.
