TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - One or more cyber stalkers using aliases that include "Marissa" and "Lexie" are targeting sorority pledges in Florida and other states.

Campus police Maj. Jim Russell said Thursday that nine victims have been identified at Florida State University, but he believes there are many more who have not come forward.

Russell said the stalker or stalkers ask victims to be friends on Facebook, claiming to be a part of the pledging process. That can lead to one-way video chats that become increasingly invasive including demands that victims disrobe on camera.

Russell said similar incidents have been reported at other campuses including the University of Alabama, Auburn University and Louisiana State University.
