Woman arrested in nearby motel

PROSPECT HEIGHTS, Ill. - A 14-year-old Illinois boy didn't exactly get what he was looking for when he hired a prostitute who then stole his piggy bank, police said.

After arranging a meeting online, Dareka R. Brooks, 22, came to the Prospect Heights, Ill. home of the 14-year-old while his parents were out of town, ABC News reported .

The pair went to the boy's bedroom, where Brooks told the boy to remove his pants before spraying him in the face with pepper spray, police said.

Brooks took off with the boy's piggy bank and iPad. Police did not say how much money was in the bank.

Investigators later tracked Brooks to a motel about 10 minutes from the boy's home when she turned on the iPad, police said.

She was arrested on a preliminary charge of armed robbery.
