Accused Stalker of Local YouTube Star Arrested After Showing Up at Teen's Delaware County Home

A Michigan man is facing stalking and harassment charges for stalking a Main Line teen who is popular on social media, police said.

Michael Leib, 30, showed up at the teen's Radnor Township, Pennsylvania home for the first time a couple weeks ago, then again this week, police said.

Family members of the teen, who is well-known on YouTube and Instagram, received threatening messages from Leib saying, "I am going to take your son," police said.

When the man showed up at the Radnor home, family called police, but Leib got away.

This week, detectives took control of the teen's accounts to lure Leib back to the home where he was arrested.

Leib was charged Tuesday with misdemeanor stalking and harassment charges. He was arraigned and released after posting 10 percent of $20,000 bail. Attorney information was not listed on court documents.

Police warn parents to be diligent about checking their children's social media accounts for any red flags.
