Would-be john alleges theft by prostitute

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) — A Mankato man landed in jail after calling 911 and telling police a prostitute failed to deliver on his $200 payment.

Authorities say the 26-year-old man called police from the Super 8 motel in Mankato Wednesday and told officers he agreed to pay the woman for sex, but that she took his cash without holding up her end of the deal.

Officers tracked down the woman after the man gave police a description of her vehicle. Both the man and woman found themselves behind bars in the Blue Earth County Jail.

The Free Press says that besides prostitution and disorderly conduct citations, police issued a third misdemeanor charge of doing business without a peddler's permit.
