PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Police say a Rhode Island man sent photos of himself wearing girls’ school uniforms and lingerie to more than 40 women.

Providence resident Dennis Ciaramello was arrested Monday on seven counts of cyberstalking and one count of felony stalking.

Police say the 61-year-old Ciaramello sent unwanted voice messages and electronic messages containing photos and videos to 45 females, including four girls. Police say the contact between Ciaramello and some of the victims goes back as far as 45 years.

Police say Ciaramello knew some of the victims, but others were strangers. Police believe he obtained the women’s phone numbers through his work as a house painter.

It’s unclear whether Ciaramello has a lawyer who could comment.

A message left at a phone number listed for Ciaramello wasn’t immediately returned.


This story has been corrected to show that Ciaramello was arrested Monday, not Tuesday.
