PETALING JAYA: A 13-year-old boy was picked up by police for allegedly threatening to circulate a photo and video of a naked girl masturbating.
The boy, a student of a school in Sepang, became friends with the 13-year-old girl via WeChat in March this year.
Petaling Jaya police chief Asst Comm Azmi Abu Kassim (pic) said after being friends for two months, the suspect began demanding photos and video from the victim.
“They would often contact each other via the application. Things were okay until the boy started asking for photos and video.
“In May, the boy allegedly demanded the girl to send a photo of her revealing parts of her breasts and in mid June, he demanded a video of her masturbating,” he said, adding that the victim stopped contacting the suspect after the second incident.
“That angered him and he threatened to circulate the photo and video of her. Afraid the threat would materialise, the girl filed a report which led to the arrest,” he said.
ACP Azmi said the boy was picked up in Sepang several hours after the report was lodged.
“We seized a handphone, laptop, two t-shirts, a pair of shorts and a phone bill,” he said, adding that investigation was ongoing.
