Teen arrested for nude photo blackmail on Snapchat
A 17-year-old boy has been arrested after he blackmailed a 14-year-old girl to pay him so he wouldn’t publish nude pictures she’d sent him.
The girl – who lives in Lucerne - had already handed over CHF 400, but then the boy asked for more. In desperation she went to the police.
Lucerne police had to ask US authorities to intervene to get the details from Snapchat which is based there.
Prosecutors say the boy has confessed. Investigations are ongoing.
