He paid other women as “bait” to convince that the images of the victims would not be posted online.

Sometimes the victims were detained against their will and in the worst cases, they were forced to engage in sexual practices to which they had previously expressly refused.

A federal arrest warrant has been issued for Pratt in the United States District Court, Southern District of California on November 6, 2019.

The Spanish National Police tweeted: ‘Arrested in #Madrid a New Zealand fugitive, included in the #FBI’s 10 most wanted list.
