A Connecticut man accused of targeting his neighbor in an advertisement that invited strangers to a rowdy orgy at her home has made his first court appearance. Philip James Conran, 42, did not enter a plea Thursday in Hartford Superior Court. The West Hartford man is charged with reckless endangerment, harassment and other offenses.

Police say Conran posted an ad on Craigslist on April 5 pretending to be a neighbor with whom he'd been feuding. The ad said the woman wanted to fulfill her fantasy of group sex and listed her address, prompting several strangers to visit or drive by.

One man was arrested after allegedly going to the wrong address and groping a teenage girl there.

Conran was ordered to have no contact with his neighbor and is due in court June 10.
