Dentzel Zaryn, the Co-Founder of the Spanish social media network Tuenti and a Bitcoin (BTC) investor, was reportedly a victim of torture and an attempted kidnapping related to his crypto fortune. According to El Español, Spanish police are investigating the alleged robbery attempt that Zaryn suffered, leaving him with a ‘superficial knife’ wound resulting from the incident in Madrid.

There were four assailants, said the American entrepreneur, who are suspected to be from Eastern Europe based on the inquiries. Police believe the gang targeted Zaryn’s private BTC wallet keys, as he provided them in the first instance with the login details. However, he managed to lock his accounts in time before anything was stolen.

Tuenti’s Co-Founder reportedly holds over $58 million worth in Bitcoin across his wallets. According to Zaryn, he thought that the individual that knocked on the door to enter his home was a prostitute who he had hired. A maintenance worker accompanied him at that time, El Español said, adding some sort of credibility to his testimony. Afterwards, the four assailants proceeded to handcuff him and spray him with an unknown liquid, the police detailed, quoting the entrepreneur’s testimony.

No Arrests Made Yet

Police agents are now investigating the CCTV footage from the building and making inquiries with the neighbors. The gang reportedly had taken computers, flash drives, a tablet, jewelry, and mobile phones from Zaryn’s home. In addition, the neighbor who alerted the police about the incident heard screams coming from Zaryn’s home asking for help.

No arrests have been made as of press time nor is there additional information about the incident, as the Spanish Police continues to investigate the attempted robbery of the Bitcoins. Furthermore, they are trying to find a connection between the prostitute and the criminals who might have used her as bait to access Zaryn’s home. Although, she never showed up in the neighborhood when the incident occurred.
