ATHENS, OH -

Ohio University Police are investigating a twisted extortion case on their main campus.

According to CBS affiliate WBNS in Columbus, Ohio University male student, Dorian Graham, 19, posed as a female in a ploy to get another male student to send him naked photos. The photos were sent through Snapchat, which is a smart phone app that allows users to view photos for a brief period.

Once the nude photos were sent, Graham used those pictures to blackmail the male victim into sex.

Graham allegedly posted the victim's nude photos on Instagram, a social media app that allows users to post photos.

In order for Graham to remove the nude photos off of social media, Graham then extorted the victim to have sex with him in Adams Hall at Ohio University's Athens campus.

The victim contacted Ohio University Police, following the incident, according to OU Police.

Graham is charged with four felonies, including sexual battery and extortion.

He is free on bond.
