According to U.S. Attorney Sellinger, Gawargyous, aka “George,” Shind, 31, of Jersey City, is charged by complaint with cyberstalking. 

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

From April 2020 to November 2021, Shind engaged in a pattern of harassment directed towards at least four female victims by employing means of electronic communications, including text messages and computing services platforms, to threaten grievous bodily injury and death.
