MIAMI – Miami police arrested pro boxer and fitness influencer Stefi Cohen on multiple criminal charges Tuesday after they accused her of hacking into a man’s laptop and sharing his girlfriend’s intimate photos online with the purpose of “exposing and humiliating her.”

Cohen, whose full name is Stefanie Cohen Magarici, lives in the city’s Coconut Grove neighborhood. Born in Venezuela, the 32-year-old has 1 million followers on Instagram and is described in a mixed martial arts publication as a “25-time world record powerlifter.”

An arrest report from the Miami Police Department states that the victim reported what happened to detectives in November 2023.

Police said Cohen had learned in March 2022 that the victim was in a relationship with a man she used to live with. The report states that he had left his laptop at Cohen’s home.

It states that on March 21, 2022, Cohen was able to guess the man’s laptop password and obtained several sexually explicit images of the victim.

Police said Cohen proceeded to post the images, without the victim’s consent, to a group chat that Cohen, the victim and “several other girls were also a part of.”

“In one of the messages, Ms. Cohen states she sent the photos maliciously and with the intent to cause emotional distress to (the victim),” police wrote in the report.

Police said on Tuesday, they surveilled Cohen’s Loquat Avenue home and moved in to arrest her after she walked outside.

Authorities said after an officer informed her that she was under arrest, she “did not comply and began to walk at fast pace back to her residence.”

The report states the officer stopped Cohen and “told her she was not allowed to go inside her home and instead to just call her boyfriend so he could just pick up her dog.”

“Ms. Cohen then stated she was not going with them and began to physically resist,” police wrote.

Cohen tensed up her arms, then, after two officers placed her in handcuffs, “right leg hooked” one of them and tried to “sweep him off his feet.”

Police said after being put in the back of a squad car, Cohen “placed her right leg on the latch to unlock the door and grabbed it with her toes,” then “pulled the latch with her toes and intentionally broke the locking system causing the door not to lock at all.”

Authorities said Cohen declined to speak with detectives about the case at MPD headquarters.

Police took her to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on charges of unauthorized access to a computer, a felony, as well as misdemeanor sexual cyberharassment and criminal mischief charges.

Cohen also faces a municipal resisting arrest violation.

According to jail records, she remained at TGK on a $3,300 bond as of Wednesday morning.
