MANILA – A man was arrested in Zamboanga City on Monday after allegedly extorting sexual favors from a minor in exchange for not releasing their sex video.

The victim, a 17-year-old girl, said suspect Ian Flores raped her inside a motel last Sunday.

The victim said she met Flores through social networking site Facebook. She said the suspect introduced himself as a marketing officer who also works as a photographer.

She said she agreed to become Flores' subject in his photo shoot, but the latter ended up raping her.

The victim said Flores threatened to release their sex video if she would not agree to meet with him once more. This prompted her to tell the police her predicament.

Flores was arrested inside a pension house. Seized from him were fake peso bills and a DVD supposedly containing the sex video. – report from RJ Rosalado, ABS-CBN News Zamboanga
