NATIONAL POLICE arrested a 20-year-old man in Viator (Almeria) who had threatened at least 600 girls between 12 and 17 via social networking sites since 2007. He had created more than 500 profiles using the same number of e-mail addresses, then threatened to post pictures of the girls on porn sites or infect their computers with a virus unless they sent him pictures of themselves nude or posed for the webcam.
A search of his home revealed almost 1,000 videos, links to child pornography sites and photos of naked girls. The investigation began after a 12-year-old girl in Oviedo reported that she had been threatened.
