Bail extended in Facebook stalking case 

A 42-year-old man charged with using Facebook to groom a 13-year-old boy for sex has had his bail extended to February 28.

John Harrison, of Golden Square, faced the Bendigo Magistrates Court briefly yesterday before being ordered to return for a committal mention.

Harrison has been charged with stalking a Bendigo teenager and using Facebook as a carriage service to menace the boy over a period of six months.

Police allege Harrison befriended the boy on Facebook and sent him a series of messages, demanding sexual acts.

Harrison was arrested at his home in a police raid on February 1.
