A man from Chicago’s south side stands accused of harassing a former relative from Naperville with lurid text messages and the posting of her personal information to Internet websites, including some offering escort services.

Bail was set at $75,000 for Mark A. Nunnally, 47. He faces trial in DuPage County Circuit Court in Wheaton on a felony charge of cyberstalking/causing fear for one’s safety, according to court records.

Written Naperville police records showed investigators about 9:20 a.m. Tuesday took Nunnally into custody at his home on the 4800 block of South Chicago Beach Drive in Chicago’s Kenwood neighborhood. He was released later that day after posting $7,500 bond.

Police Cmdr. Lou Cammiso on Friday identified the alleged victim in the case as a 30-year-old Naperville resident who was once related to Nunnally.

Cammiso, in an e-mail, said the woman “had been receiving harassing and threatening texts for several months.” A police officer soon learned she had had “personal information, including (her) phone number and home address, posted to various social websites” that included escort services, craigslist and Twitter, he said.

Additionally, the woman had unwittingly been “signed up to receive additional information through various cosmetic surgery institutes and websites,” Cammiso said.

Subpoenas that were later served to these websites “revealed the Comcast Internet protocol (ip) address” of Nunnally, he said.

Cammiso, when asked about the content of the text messages, would say only that they were of a “sexual nature.”

Cammiso added investigators do not know his motive for the alleged harassment campaign.

An examination of court documents indicated Nunnally has no record in DuPage County. A Jan. 13 arraignment date has been set in the case, according to court records.
