If you needed another reason not to talk to strangers on airplanes, here it is.

Soraida Hicks met Bruce Stimon on a flight from Boston to D.C. in late 2011. WJLA reports that over the course of several months, the two became friends, then more than friends, then Stimon, a tech worker living in New England, gave Hicks, who lives in Northern Virginia, an iPhone on his family plan:

That's when he got information on all her friends and contacts and things started going south.

“He emailed all of them saying I had an STD," said Hicks.

The harassment did not stop there. After the STD incident, Hicks broke up with Stimon, who sent a video of the two having sex to Hicks' daughter's Twitter followers. He also listed Hicks -- and sometimes Hicks' daughter Pam, as well -- on prostitution and pornography websites.

“It was devastating,” Pam told WJLA.

Stimon then took to slashing Hicks' tires, and was finally arrested when Arlington police caught him with a "knife in his hand and with laptops full of evidence in his car," WJLA reports. He was sentenced to seven years in prison at the end of January.
