Vietnamese girl blackmailed into sex by ‘boyfriend’ she met online

Police in the northern Vietnamese province of Vinh Phuc said on Monday that they had detained a 17-year-old adolescent on suspicion of blackmailing a 12-year-old girl for sex.

Nguyen Anh Tuan, 17, hails from Tam Duong District in Vinh Phuc.

In July 2020, he targeted and got acquainted with a 12-year-old girl, identified as V.T.T., a native of the same district via Facebook.

After a couple of hours of online chat, Tuan asked T. to send him photos of her naked, which she did.

The victim was then invited to his house for sex, but she refused.

Rejected, Tuan threatened to distribute the girl’s nude photos to her schoolmates if she did not come around to have sex with him.

After successfully blackmailing the girl into sexual intercourse, Tuan went on to demand that she buy him a new phone or he would leak her photos online.

Fearing for her privacy, T. borrowed money from her friends to meet his demand.

After getting the phone, Tuan continued to coerce T. into giving him VND3 million (US$130) in cash.

At a dead end with no more money to fulfill the request, T. confessed everything to her family members, who then contacted police.

On August 11, Tuan was detained by police officers as he arrived at a venue where T. had set him up to pick up the money.
