Rochester Man Accused of Blackmailing High School Girl
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester man is accused of trying to force a local high school student to send nude photographs to his Instagram account.
The 16-year-old student contacted police in December, saying she had received an online message from an unknown person who demanded nude photographs. He said he had nude photographs of her that she had taken when she was 14 and would start releasing them if she did not send him new ones.
Police determined the messages came from 29-year-old Dzenan Kamencic. He told investigators the teen’s photos were “randomly sent to him. “ Investigators searched his phone and confirmed his messages to the teenager. They also found multiple images of child porn on his phone and computer. One was of a girl who was 6 - 18 months old.
It was also learned Kamencic had contacted an adult female and later sent nude photographs of her to some of her family members and other Instagram users.
A warrant has been issued for his arrest. He is facing multiple charges, including stalking a minor.
