A LaPlace man has been arrested and charged with cyberstalking and online impersonation after he was alleged to have created a fake online posting advertising a "group sexual encounter" at a woman's home.

Stephen Kropog, 39, was arrested by St. John the Baptist Parish police on Friday. After a search of his home, Kropog was also charged with possession of steroids, police said.

The female victim, who reportedly knew Kropog, reported that on May 22 a man arrived at her home in response to the Craigslist ad. The victim said she was unaware of what was going on, and when she questioned the man about why he was there, he walked away.

Police said the man is believed to have no involvement with the ad itself. The victim was unharmed, police said.
