A woman was arrested after allegedly stealing a piggy bank from a 14-year-old Illinois teenager she met online.

According to a report by WITI, police said the Chicago teenager claimed to be home alone on Thursday, May 2, and said he was trying to pick up a prostitute online when Dareka Brooks accepted the invitation.

According to officials, Brooks arrived at the teenager’s home and asked him to go into his bedroom. When she entered the room, she reportedly pepper-sprayed the teen and stole his piggy bank and iPad.

Police were able to track Brooks back to a motel after she turned on the iPad.

The woman is charged with armed robbery and is being held on $10,000 bond.
