    Man Who Allegedly Made Explicit Rape Threats On Facebook To Face Court

    The man will face court on Thursday.

    In late August 2015, Olivia Melville faced a torrent of online abuse after a screenshot of her Tinder profile went viral.

    The abuse led to Melville's friends creating Sexual Violence Won't Be Silenced, an advocacy group combatting online sexual harassment.

    Now a man who allegedly made rape threats to various members of Sexual Violence Won't Be Silenced (SVWBS) has been charged with using a carriage service to menace, harass, or cause offence.

    The man who allegedly made the threats will appear at Newtown Local Court on Thursday 29 October.
