Police have arrested an Indian national last Wednesday for alleged sexual extortion against his 24-year- old Zamboangueña girlfriend.

Chief Insp. Helen Galvez, Police Regional Office-9 Information Officer, identified the suspect as Stephen Jala, 42 years old.

Personnel of Zamboanga City Police Station 11 Intelligence Section and the 904th Maneuver Company of the Regional Force Mobile Battalion 9 arrested Jala during an entrapment operation along Mayor Jaldon Street at 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Police conducted the operation after a 24-year-old woman complained that her Indian national boyfriend threatened to expose her nude photographs on social media if she refuses to have sexual relations with him.

Police personnel immediately conducted the entrapment operation and arrested the Indian national.

Police recovered two cellular phones from the suspect.

Jala was placed under the custody of Zamboanga Police Station 11 and is now facing charges of extortion.  (Remus Ong)
