A resident of the 3300 block of North High Street reported social-media harassment at 2:06 a.m. March 6.
The juvenile victim told Columbus police someone had accessed his Facebook account and posted racial slurs in his name.
In a related incident, an officer was dispatched March 8 to the same location on a menacing complaint.
There, a man told police his juvenile son had received a message via Snapchat in which a suspect had threatened to beat up the boy. The suspect also reportedly sent another message to a mutual friend in which he had threatened to kill the victim.
The officer visited the suspect's house and spoke with him and his parents. The suspect reportedly admitted to sending the messages, but did not understand the victim's Facebook account had been accessed and racial slurs posted in his name.
Reports said the suspect and his parents "seemed to understand the importance of not making any more menacing statements."
