A female student accused a former classmate with cyber harassment earlier this month, alleging that he had been sending her harassing messages on Canvas for the past 10 months, according to the University Police Department.

Around 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13, the female student walked into University Police headquarters and reported that Giovany Ganthier, 18, of Roselle Park, N.J., had been contacting her since they had class together during the fall 2015 semester.

“This was a citizen upon citizen complaint, that persons have the right to file,” said Captain Kieran Barrett of the University Police Department.

“I cannot release what was specifically stated in communications between these two individuals as both the prosecution and defense would be compromised,” continued Barrett. “All persons charged with offenses are under the presumption of innocence until judged by a court of jurisdiction.”

The complaint against Ganthier will be heard at Little Falls Municipal Court.
