Brandyn Stewart to reappear on blackmail charges today

Tuesday, 20 August 2013 - 10:50am


Today, Brandyn STEWART, will reappear in the Hutt Valley District Court facing three charges of blackmail, one charge of contract for sex with a person under 18 years old and two charges of attempting to contract for sex with a person under 18 years old. No plea has been entered for the new charges.

Five additional victims aged between 14 and 16 years old have made statements to Police. These victims are in addition to the two 11-year-old victims who complained to Police with the support of their families and began the investigation.

Detective Sergeant Christiaan Barnard says "We believe there may still be other victims who have been in contact with STEWART. In addition to the original profile used of "Nick Davis", we have found two others which are 'Cee Jay' and 'Cam Jackson'. Both profiles were used late last year and earlier this year".

If anyone has concerns or has information about the activities of STEWART, they should contact Hutt Valley Police on (04) 560 2600.

Information can also be provided anonymously through phoning Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
