Southampton Blotter: Flanders teen harassed on Snapchat

A Flanders resident reported being harassed by a classmate on Snapchat on Dec. 29. 

The teen reportedly received multiple snapchats from someone trying to engage the teen in fighting, which the teen refused, officials said. The complainant said the other teen reportedly posted messages to her Snapchat story saying the two were going to fight. The complainant went to the other teen’s house to ask that the messages stop, and the other person recorded the incident and posted it to snapchat, officials said. The teen said the messages made her fear for her family and her own safety and asked that the incident be documented, officials said.
