Police seek information on online pedophile

Police on Wednesday published the name and photograph of a 47-year-old man accused of blackmailing teenage girls into posting explicit photographs of themselves online.

Themistoklis Mavrodimos, from Larissa, central Greece, allegedly created a false profile on Facebook featuring a picture of himself at the age of 19 in order to attract female teenage users.

Members of the public who have any information pertaining to the case are asked to call the Volos precinct on 24210.76957 or 24210.76959.
