Police in the north-central Vietnamese province of Ha Tinh said on Friday that they have arrested a 25-year-old man for allegedly filming a teenage girl while bathing and blackmailing her for money.

D.N.T.C., 16, living in Vu Quang District, Ha Tinh, made a report of the case to the local police on Wednesday. 

C. lost her mobile phone while staying at the house of her aunt, D.T.N., in the same district on July 31, according to the report.

The phone later appeared to be stolen by Bui Trung Kien, 25, also living in Vu Quang.

Kien accessed C.’s personal Facebook account, which could be opened on the phone, to send videos, in which the man filmed the girl bathing naked, to her other Facebook account. 

The videos were recorded using the same phone.

Kien demanded that C. should pay him VND30 million (US$1,320), otherwise, he would post the films on the Internet.

C. asked to meet Kien and pay the money on Wednesday afternoon.

At the meeting place, C. gave the blackmailing man VND3 million ($132).

Kien took the cash, but did not delete the clips as previously agreed, and rode his motorbike away.

Police in Vu Quang District arrested Kien and confiscated the exhibit after receiving C.’s report.

The case is currently being investigated by the Vu Quang District police.
