A Schuylkill County man says he’s being blackmailed over a video of him pleasuring himself.

According to information released by State Police in Schuylkill Haven, the Auburn man says the person blackmailing him was met through Facebook.

Somehow, this person met online got their hands on a video of the victim providing self-gratification. Obviously, the relationship soured to the point that the person met online said they would “expose the victim” and share the video with others unless they got $2,000.

No charges have been filed in connection with this incident. Police say their investigation is ongoing.
