NBI arrests man for ‘sextortion’

Upon handing over of the marked money, the operatives immediately approached the subject and put him under arrest

Charges will be filed against a man who threatened his girlfriend that he would expose her sex videos, nude photos and rape of her teenage daughter if he would not shell out P10,000.

This after the National Bureau of Investigation Anti-Organized and Transnational Crimes Division arrested  him based on the complaint of the girlfriend, in an entrapment operation last 19 September in Quezon City.

The NBI-AOTCD arranged the entrapment at the girlfriend's place of work where she handed P10,000 to the man.

"Upon handing over of the marked money, the operatives immediately approached the subject and put him under arrest," the report said.

Agents were able to seize the man's cellphone which contained the nude photos and sex videos of the complainant.

Charges were filed before the Quezon City Prosecutor's Office with robbery and robbery with violence or intimidation of persons under Articles 293 and 294 of the Revised Penal Code, as amended; grave threats as defined and penalized under the RPC; and violations of Republic Act 9995, the Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009; and RA 9262, the Violence Against Women and Their Children Act of 2004.

The NBI said that the suspect's cousin "offered his testimony in support of the complainant's allegations, stating that he saw the threats that his cousin sent to complainant and confirmed that subject was extorting P10,000 from the complainant."

The cousin stated that the complainant showed him several online transactions of money transfers to the subject amounting to P50,000.
