Cop arrested for ‘sextortion’ in Bulacan

POLICE arrested a cop who threatened to leak intimate videos of former partner on social media if she refuses to meet up with him in Bulacan, early Thursday.

Members of the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) anti-scalawag unit arrested Pat. Julius Ramos and will face grave coercion and cybercrime offenses.

The operation stemmed from the complaint of the suspect’s former partner that he threatened to leak their intimate videos on social media if she refuses to meet up with him.

During the arrest, the suspect was caught at a traveler’s inn in Barangay Tungkong Mangga, San Jose del Monte City, Bulacan together with the complainant.

The police officer is now detained at the IMEG custodial facility at Camp Crame, Quezon City.
