China Press reported that the boy, who committed the atrocious acts in December 2018, was arrested on 26 February.

His arrest was confirmed by Segamat district police chief Supt Raub Selamat.

The victims, who are friends with each other, range from 11 to 13 years old

According to Sin Chew Daily, the victims had met the suspect through an app before the latter threatened them to send naked pictures of themselves. 

The victims gave in after the 17-year-old vowed to publicise nudes of their friends if they did not comply to his demands.

Supt Raub Selamat revealed that the suspect had committed the crime through various social media platforms under different names.

The act was uncovered after one of the victims, accompanied by her parents, lodged a police report against the suspect earlier this week

The girl decided to lodge the report after receiving a naked picture of herself from the suspect.

"After we lodged the report, we realised there were many more girls who were victims of the 17-year-old," the girl's father told Sin Chew Daily. 

"About six or seven girls have since lodged police reports against him, and there are more than 10 girls who haven't done it. There are almost 20 of them." he added.

Parents of the victims have previously confronted the suspect's parents about his actions but to no avail.
