Police in the southern province of Hau Giang Tuesday arrested a 19-year old student for allegedly filming several female classmates while bathing and blackmailing them for money.
They caught Duong Ho Vu of Can Tho University red-handed Tuesday while he was withdrawing VND500,000 one of the girls had sent him, they said.
Vu had demanded that each of the dozen girls should pay him VND5 million, failing which he said he would post the films on the Internet.
He admitted to the police he had secretly recorded the girls bathing naked between mid-March and early April when the students stayed at a national defense education camp.
He hid inside the women’s toilet and filmed on his mobile phone.
Only one of the victims agreed to pay him and only VND1.5 million, and he was arrested while withdrawing part of that money.
