A 31-year-old Florida woman is accused of posing as a teenager in order to have sex with a 14-year-old boy.
Naomi Dixon is charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery involving a sex act with a child, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal. The victim told Volusia County sheriff's investigators that he met Dixon at a party in early September. Dixon allegedly claimed she was 17 years old, and the victim said he was 14.
After the two met, they had sex at her Deltona home eight times and stayed together regularly, the victim said. According to a sheriff's report, the victim had a hard time leaving Dixon's home. On several occasions when he tried to go home, she became upset, locked the door and even choked him.
The victim claimed the woman carved his first initial onto her arm with a pocket knife. He told his parents about the relationship on Sept. 25 after growing tired of the woman trying to keep him at her house.
When she was arrested Thursday, Dixon at first denied she had sex with the boy. She also insisted she thought he was 18. She is being held at Volusia County Branch Jail on $50,000 bail.
Predatory posers aren't uncommon. In June 2012, a 24-year-old Massachusetts woman was arrested after posing as a teenage boy in order to have sex with a 15-year-old West Virginia girl. According to court documents, Carissa Hads hid her breasts by wearing a black brace, and used a prosthetic penis in an encounter with the minor.
In 2011, an Ohio woman created a fake Facebook profile and posed as an "attention-grabbing teenage girl" in order to gather incriminating information about her estranged husband. Her covert operation actually ended up getting her husband arrested, after he reportedly installed a tracking device on his wife's car.
