A Dutch media outlet is reporting the arrest of a 35-year-old man in the Netherlands in connection with the Amanda Todd case.

The 15-year-old Port Coquitlam, B.C., girl killed herself in October 2012, after posting a YouTube video detailing her harassment.

The media report from regional broadcaster Omroep Brabant says the man has already been detained for three months. It says he will stay detained for now because a request to free him on bail in anticipation of court proceedings was turned down on Wednesday.

The report claims justice officials allege the man was behind the harassment and extortion of Todd.

The report says the lawyer for the man says the case against his client is paper thin.
