State police are investigating an apparent extortion attempt that occurred over video-calling service Skype.

Trooper Steve Limani said an 18-year-old township female exposed herself to a man, who videotaped the encounter without her knowledge sometime between Sept. 1 and March 5. The man later showed the teen the video and requested $100.

Troopers are in the process of obtaining search warrants in hopes of identifying a suspect, Limani said.
