Chad Lesko says being threatened by a total stranger was his first clue something wasn't right.
"I was walking at Highland Park yesterday, a guy comes up to me and said, ‘You shouldn't be around here, this is a kids' area, you're a rapist.' I'm like, ‘Excuse me, no I'm not.'"
On Monday, someone posting as Nicole McCarthy posted on Facebook Lesko's picture, saying, "He's wanted by Toledo Police for 4 counts of rape. He raped three little girls and his own son."
It's a serious allegation which Lesko says isn't true.
"My girlfriend told me it was on Facebook," he said. "I was like, ‘Okay, what's going on? Send me the link.' Then my friend told me about it, too, so I went to the link. I was like, ‘This is not true.'"
While Toledo Police say Lesko is not wanted on rape charges, that one post has been shared more than 20,000 times.
"This is crazy, I'm scared to even walk down the street now because all of the drama that's been going on," he said.
According to Lesko, Nicole McCarthy is a fake account set up by the mother of his son, and he's hoping to clear his name and put this in the past.
"It's getting aggravating because I'm trying to live my life, I'm not trying to do anything bad, I've changed my life around."
