(Newser) – A bizarre crime case out of Ohio: A 31-year-old woman has been charged with posing as a 14-year-old boy to have sex with a 16-year-old girl, reports the Dayton Daily News. Patricia Dye, aka "Matt Abrams," is being held on $100,000 bond and is charged with engaging in unlawful sex with a minor.

Dye allegedly befriended the teenager and lured her to a hotel room. They were "in and out" of the room, say police, until the teen learned the truth and fled. "It's very, very disturbing," says a friend of the victim. "She had me fooled. I thought she was dealing with a 14-year-old boy."
