A Milwaukee woman is in an Illinois jail after stealing a piggy bank from a boy who solicited her for sex.

Officials in Cook County, Ill., said Dareka Brooks, 22, accepted a 14-year-old's online solicitation and met him as his Prospect Heights home.

Officials said Brooks instructed the teen to go to his bedroom and remove his pants.

Police said she then entered the teen's room, pepper-sprayed him and took his piggy bank and iPad.

Prospect Heights police tracked Brooks to a motel room after she turned on the stolen iPad.

Brooks faces a charge of armed robbery and is being held on a $10,000 bond.
