Minnesota man accused of harassment, threatening CU female athletes

BOULDER, Colo. -- A Minnesota man is accused of threatening and harassing female athletes from the University of Colorado, according to a criminal complaint.

Eric Ronald Bolduan, 43 of Rochester, Minnesota, is facing charges of stalking and interstate communications after an investigation showed he allegedly would download photos of the athletes on social media and then post them with similar looking adult performers.

Those photos were sent to people who knew the athletes in an attempt to smear the athletes, according to the criminal compliant.

The document said those photos would also show up on pornographic websites.

There were four victims in Colorado, according to the criminal compliant. But there were more than 50 other victims of similar activity nationwide.

The alleged harassment and threats started sometime around November 2015 when twin sisters from CU were sent the photos that featured legitimate, nonpornographic photos of the victim along with nude photos that appeared similar to the victim, but was not her.
