A 19-year-old Belleville man has been charged with extortion after trying to elicit the victim for a sexual act.
According to a report on the Kingston Police website, on January 28, 2017 at approximately 2:00 a.m. the accused called the victim and threatened to send a message to her fiancé if she did not perform a sexual act on him. The victim hung up the phone, but the accused persisted using social media as a way to contact her and her fiancé.
The incident was reported to police and a warrant was applied for as the accused had no fixed address and his whereabouts were unknown.
On June 4, 2017 the accused was arrested in Belleville. He was transported to Kingston police headquarters where he was held to attend a bail hearing Monday.
The accused was charged with extortion and breach of probation.
Quinte News has reached out to both Kingston and Belleville police requesting the identity of the accused.
