The messages threatened to send the photos to her family.At first she did not pay any attention to the messages and did not take them seriously, but then, she received messages with pictures attached.
She decided to inform the police and an investigation was able to track the owner of the number and he was arrested.
The defendant admitted he knew the woman for three years while he pretended to be a woman.He added he accompanied her everywhere and took hundreds of pictures of her.The girl almost fainted when she realised her friend was a man, the report states.
She not only requested the prosecutor to close the case, but also withdrew her complaint.
