FAYETTE (KWWL) -

A Manchester man faces harassment charges, accused of making numerous phone calls and Facebook posts to threaten a woman.

The Fayette County Sheriff's Office says 53-year-old Dennis Porter allegedly made more than 50 harassing phone calls to a female victim, made harassing comments through Facebook through several accounts, and threatened the life of the victim.

Porter is a convicted sex offender and is required to have his cell phones and internet accounts registered on the sex offender registry and did not.

Fayette County deputies and officers with the Manchester Police Department took Porter into custody Thursday.

He's charged with harassment in the third degree, and may also face charges for violating sex offender registration.
