TOKYO, Japan (NTV-NNN) - Tokyo police arrested a man today Saturday for blackmailing a secret photographer for up skirting at a railroad station in Tokyo.

Shinosuke Soma is suspected of extorting cash from the lewd photographer, insisting the woman whose underwear was photographed suffered a nervous breakdown and needed hundreds of thousand dollars for treatment.

The 25-year-old Soma received blackmail payments amounting to over $68-thousand (7.5 million yen) from the photographer last June.

Soma allegedly threatened the same man again.

Police said the blackmailer admitted to the charges.
