BERWYN - A Berwyn man apparently thought all he had to do to get his ex-girlfriend from Riverside to come back was to post naked photos of her online, and threaten to post more of them if she didn't.

Riverside police arrested Raul Martinez, 24, of the 2300 block of South Home Avenue at 5:15 p.m. Sunday on charges of domestic harassment through electronic communication, according to police.

The 21-year-old Riverside woman came to the police station Sunday to report that Martinez posted several naked pictures of her on his public Facebook account, police said.

Even as officers were investigating the case Sunday afternoon the offender kept texting the victim while she was at the police department, threatening to post more photos of her if she didn't meet him in person to talk about repairing their relationship, said Riverside Police Chief Thomas Weitzel.

At 5:15 p.m. on Sunday, Riverside Police went to the last-known address of the suspect and were able to take him into custody without incident.
