Cheyenne police are asking Minecraft gamers for help in finding a cyberbully.

Officer Kevin Malatesta says a person believed to be a Cheyenne juvenile is making "abusive and threatening statements" towards other juveniles on Minecraft.

"This person is going under the name of bad_news_swest and using that Minecraft server to kind of bully people," said Malatesta.

Anyone who recognizes the username and knows the person is asked to call Sgt. Durante at (307) 637-6530.

"Typically in something like this it would just be a misdemeanor offense," said Malatesta. "But we have to complete the investigation to see kind of where things are at or kind of the severity of these comments."
