Northern Arizona University professor indicted for stalking student, firefighters

FLAGSTAFF, AZ – A Northern Arizona University professor is accused of stalking a student and two firefighters she met online.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that a federal grand jury indicted 36-year-old Melissa Ann Santana this week on five counts of felony stalking.

According to court documents, the married interior design professor started cyber-stalking an NAU student in February 2015 months after they met through Craigslist.

Over the next several months, she met two U.S. Forest Service firefighters through Tinder and sent both harassing messages. She allegedly keyed one of the men’s cars and slashed the tires.

She is also accused of harassing their colleague and one of the men’s fiance through social media.

NAU spokeswoman Kimberly Ott says Santana is no longer employed there and declined to comment further.

University Of Michigan Police Issue ‘Sextortion’ Warning For Students

ANN ARBOR (WWJ) – University of Michigan police are warning students not to send nudes after at least two people were blackmailed this week.

Campus police on Thursday sent out a security bulletin titled, “Sextortion Warning,” after two students reported that unknown subjects had attempted to extort money from them in exchange for not publishing explicit pictures or videos online.

Police said both incidents, which occurred November 12 and 14, began with Facebook friend invitations and soon escalated into online chatting and videotaping before a demand for money was made.
