The National Police is investigating the strange assault and alleged robbery that the founder of the Tuenti social network, Zaryn Dentzel , suffered yesterday afternoon at his home in the center of Madrid, police sources have confirmed to Europa Press .
The events took place early in the afternoon at his home, located on Ruiz de Alarcón street, an attic next to the Prado Museum. According to what he himself told the agents, some people knocked on the door and he opened it. Then, “four or five hooded men” entered his house, threatened and tied up Zaryn and two other people he was with.
The assailants covered the security cameras and repeatedly asked him for his passwords for laptops, tablets and mobile phones. The victim has told the agents that after extorting him for several hours, they managed to extract the password of an account in which, he says, he had saved several tens of millions of euros in bitcoin, ‘El Español’ has advanced.
The founder of the social network also related to the agents who beat him and made several cuts to the chest and electric shocks with a taser gun. After achieving what they wanted, the robbers left with the technological material and a pen drive and Dentzel called the police at around 7:20 p.m.
The agents took a statement from him and have opened a report on what happened but they find it strange that the victim has not yet filed a formal complaint at the police station, nor has he presented an injury report for the alleged injuries. Nor has he specified the amount of money or material stolen.
