Yair Guadalupe Velazquez — who had been involved with the victim in an “on and off again relationship” over the past few years — was upset with her about a year ago when he emailed a nude photo to her former co-workers, according to a police news release.

He then allegedly started extorting the victims for sexual favors, threatening to send out other naked pictures to her friends and family members if she did not do as he instructed, police said.

In January, when she didn’t heed his request, Velazquez sent a second nude photo of the woman to her relatives and friends, the release stated.

He was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of extortion and revenge porn, according to the release.

The case remains under investigation, and anyone with information is urged to call Simi Valley police Detective Patrick Zayicek at 805-583-6971.
