The Turlock Police Department is investigating a case of extortion after a man threatened to release nude photos of a woman if he didn’t get other nude photos in return.

Around 1 p.m. Saturday the police department received a call from the victim stating an unknown man was threatening to release nude photos of her, except that the nude photos were not of her.

The victim received a message via Snapchat from the suspect demanding she send him nude photos of herself. If she did not, he threatened to post a photo of an unknown nude female and claim it was her, according to the police report.

The case remains under investigation and anyone with information on it can call the Turlock Police Department’s tip line at 668-5550 ext. 6780.
