An Indiana University student has been arrested after police said he posed as a 14-year-old girl to lure another man to a Seattle hotel.
Adam Blazak, 28, has been charged with extortion and unlawful imprisonment following the Dec. 18 incident.
Blazak reportedly posted an ad on Craigslist claiming to be a girl. When a 19-year-old man met him at a Seattle hotel, Blazak pinned the man to the ground and handcuffed him, police said. The man said Blazak told him he was a federal agent and wouldn’t let him go until he handed over $191 and a pair of sunglasses.
Police said Blazak told them he had always wanted to “get” a pedophile and that’s why he posted the ad online.
The 19-year-old man has also been arrested though he claims he was told the imaginary girl was 18.
