Man in Vic court over dating app blackmail

A man is set to front a Melbourne court charged with blackmailing another man using a dating app.

The 29-year-old victim had messaged various people on the app when a 34-year-old allegedly threatened to disclose his activities to another person.

The man is also accused of demanding money, which police said the victim handed over at Southern Cross Station on March 2.

The 34-year-old was later charged with blackmail and bailed to appear in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Monday.
