Police appeal over 'fake naked gameshow' as man, 29, arrested for voyeurism
POLICE want to hear from people who many have fallen victim to a fake naked gameshow.
The Met Police said a 28-year-old man reported being approached by a 29-year-old man claiming to be from the 'entertainment industry' asking him to take part for a chance to win £5,000.
A police statement said: ‘The victim was asked to go to a hotel in Newham to take part in several nude ‘challenges’ as part of the show, which were filmed. The suspect then kept the footage, believed to be for his own gratification.
‘A second victim, a 31-year-old man was identified on Sunday, 2 February 2020 and he reported that in August 2013, the suspect coerced him to go to a hotel in south east London and take part in similar activities.’
‘As part of the investigation into these offences, a 29-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday, January 30, 2019 on suspicion of voyeurism and released under investigation.’
Sergeant James Mason, of the Met’s North East Basic Command Unit, said: ‘We believe there may be more victims in relation to these events. I urge anyone who may be a victim of similar crimes or incidents from 2013 to the present day, to come forward with information.
‘The reported incidents took place several years ago and it is important we are able to investigate these and support any further victims.’
Anyone with information or who believes they may have been a victim is asked to call 101, quoting crime reference CAD1162/11122020.
