MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Dareka Brooks of Milwaukee is in jail after allegedly stealing a piggy bank from a 14-year-old suburban Chicago teenager who met Brooks online.

The teen told police he was home alone on Thursday, May 2nd, and attempting to pick up a prostitute online when Brooks accepted his invitation.

Officials say Brooks came to the teenager’s home and told him to go into his bedroom and remove his pants. They say she then entered the room, found the teen sitting on his bed, pepper-sprayed him and stole his piggy bank and his iPad.

Prospect Heights police officers tracked Brooks to a motel in Elk Grove Village after she turned on the stolen iPad.

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