Post YouTube Harrassment

My problem is that someone has created a YouTube account that sounds very similar to mine (Rhymemaiden1), has used a picture of me as the background for the page, has linked it to my real page, and has placed sexually suggestive material on the fake site. What can I do? I can find no way to report it to YouTube.

It should be noted that the person who set up this harassing account and cnidarious's puppetmaster are one and the same.
