DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a 28-year-old woman after they say she made threats and extorted money from a man she met on Craigslist.

The Palm Beach Post (https://pbpo.st/2d3t2d0 ) reports Delray Beach police arrested Vanessa Hall Wednesday after she demanded money from the man after they’d had sex. Police say Hall told the victim she was 17, and threatened to turn him into police unless he took her shopping at a mall.

According to records, the victim spent $7,000 in purchases for Hall at a mall, but later contacted police after Hall demanded $3,500 for a down payment for a car.

Records show the two initially met on Craigslist in August. Hall, who does not have counsel, remains in the Palm Beach County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
