OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The FBI on Friday announced the arrest of a 42-year-old Missouri woman for allegedly soliciting sex from an undercover officer posing as a 15-year-old boy.

Monica Watson of Parkville, Missouri, was arrested on a complaint of traveling in interstate commerce for the purpose of engaging or attempting to engage in illicit sexual conduct.

The FBI says Broken Arrow Police were contacted in May by the parents of a 14-year-old boy regarding communications he was having with a woman. A Broken Arrow detective then assumed the online identity of the 14-year-old boy, who is now 15.

The FBI says Watson set up a meeting with who she believed was the boy at a Tulsa hotel. Watson was arrested Friday afternoon at the hotel.
