The Guardia Civil arrests an alleged cyberbully

The Guardia Civil of the Region of Murcia has developed the operation ‘Heldu’, an investigation framed in the ‘Plan prevention and response against cybercrime’ developed by civil guards of the @ teams, which has culminated in the arrest of an individual, in Roquetas de Mar, as the alleged perpetrator of the crime of sextortion.

The investigation began last May, when a woman reported to the Guardia Civil that she was being harassed by a person she had contacted through social networks.

The victim reported that after this initial contact, the telephone numbers were provided and a series of conversations began via instant messaging until a certain degree of trust was established.

In this way, the complainant agreed to send him intimate videos of sexual content, believing from the beginning that her interlocutor was another woman.

It was when the victim expressed her intention to cease such practices that the threats began, in which the suspect stated his intention to make the files received public if she did not continue sending them.

Specialists of the Benemérita’s Team @ in charge of the investigation, identified the person behind these messages, a resident of the Almeria municipality of Roquetas de Mar, whose home was requested the corresponding warrant for entry and search.

The Benemérita recently carried out a search of the property, where a computer and two mobile phones were seized and are being analysed.

Operation ‘Heldu’ has culminated in the arrest of a 53-year-old Spanish man as the alleged perpetrator of the crime of sextortion.

The detainee, the effects seized and the proceedings have been placed at the disposal of the Court of Instruction number 2 of Cartagena (Murcia).

The investigation is still open.
