LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Federal investigators have now filed charges against a man accused of stalking the family of Academy Award-winning actress and Louisville native Jennifer Lawrence.

Han-Cong Zhao, 23, a Chinese-born Canadian citizen, was arrested in Louisville back in May. That's when the FBI started investigating.

Starting in early April of this year, authorities say Zhao contacted the brother of Lawrence more than 200 times. One more than one occasion, Zhao left a threatening voice mail message.

Zhao has been charged by federal authorities with interstate stalking. He is currently being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on charges of stalking and for making harassing communications. The judge ordered Zhao to have no contact with the Lawrence family.
