Facebook founder gets restraining order
  • Mark Zuckerberg was awarded a temporary restraining order
  • Suspect is accused of trying to contact Zuckerberg numerous times
  • The temporary restraining order was issued on February 1

(CNN) -- Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, has asked for protection from a man who apparently wanted to friend him a little too much.

At least it appears that way from court documents released by the Santa Clara County Superior Court in California.

Zuckerberg was granted a temporary restraining order on February 1 against a man identified as Pradeep Manukonda, according to court documents.

The Facebook CEO has kept a low-profile in recent days.

The fast-growing social networking company held a news conference Tuesday to announce that Facebook is moving operations from Palo Alto to the city of Menlo Park.

Zuckerberg was not present at the news conference.
