(CBS) CHICAGO - Using his iPad, police say a 14-year-old boy from Prospect Heights, Illinois arranged a meeting with a woman he thought would be a prostitute. But instead of having a sexual encounter, CBS Chicago reports he was pepper sprayed and robbed of his piggy bank.

The victim set up his meeting using a website for sexual liaisons, police reportedly said. When Dareka Brooks, 22, arrived at the boy's residence, she allegedly told him to take his clothes off.

Then, she pepper sprayed him, took his iPad, a piggybank and a jar full of money before fleeing, authorities said.

According to CBS Chicago, Brooks was tracked down when she used the iPad.

She was reportedly charged with one count of armed robbery and her bond was set at $10,000.

Brooks' court appearance is set for May 31. According to police, the victim is safe.
