Seattle Man, Accused John, Arrested in Alleged "Vigilante Sex Sting"

A pretend pimp and his target were arrested in what police are calling a “vigilante sex sting,” according to the Seattle Police Department.  

Seattle police arrested both men Monday at a downtown hotel after the man offered a child prostitute on Craigslist.org and lured the 19-year-old to his hotel room, a police spokesman said in a statement. Investigators contend the 28-year-old so-called vigilante then handcuffed and robbed his “John.”
