'Creepy Old' MySpace User In Custody


Full story and MySpace profile:

A man who gave himself the handle "Creepy Old Man" on his MySpace page has been charged with two counts of statutory rape.

Douglas Weed, 34, was arraigned yesterday in Central Berkshire District Court, where he was ordered held on $25,000 cash or surety bond and had his bail revoked on an unrelated assault and intimidation charge. Judge Rita S. Koenigs entered not-guilty pleas on Weed's behalf to the new charges.

According to Assistant District Attorney Deanna Roberts, the alleged victim is a 14-year-old girl. On the night of July 2, she and a friend began the night at a birthday party, Roberts said, and then, at her friend's urging, went to a party on Fenn Street in Pittsfield's downtown.

There, the alleged victim would later tell police, she was given a liter of vodka mixed with Mountain Dew that she drank throughout the night. At first she felt light-headed, then drunk, Roberts said, and she and her friend went to lay down on a bed where another party-goer was already asleep.

The friend received a phone call and left the room, Roberts said, and Weed allegedly came in and assaulted the girl both there and, later, in a bathroom. After the party, the girl told her friend what had happened.

The alleged victim — who was not identified in court — gave a statement to police, telling them that she only knew the man as "Doug," and that he had a MySpace page under the name "Creepy Old Man."
