In the ancient Catholic town of Levoča in eastern Slovakia, two girls are under police investigation for allegedly extorting money and toys from a schoolmate. The girls, aged 10 and 11, have been accused of blackmailing up to 20,000 Sk ($540) worth of goods from their 10 year old classmate. It has been reported that the schoolgirls had threatened their classmate with violence over a period of weeks and had given over most of the booty to older "acquaintances."
