Thessaloniki man arrested again for blackmailing woman over alleged sex tape

A 51-year-old man was arrested on Thursday in the northern port city of Thessaloniki for allegedly blackmailing a 43-year-woman by saying he had a compromising video of her and would show it to her husband unless she gave him 500 euros.

The suspect is believed to have posed as a private investigator and told the woman her husband had hired him to find evidence of her purported infidelity.

Arresting officers found that the 51-year-old had been arrested in 2006 on similar charges.
