Christopher Perry, 36, of Brooklyn Park faces charges of promoting and soliciting prostitution. KTTC-TV reports Perry told the officer, posing online as an 18-year-old woman, to take a bus to Minneapolis where he could be her pimp. 

He was arrested Thursday evening when he showed up to the bus station, notes a report by KROC-AM.

The Rochester Street Crimes coordinated with Minneapolis police to make the sting. KAAL-TV reports Perry is being held in the Olmsted County Jail.

The arrest comes about a month after an alleged pimp from the Twin Cities was charged in federal court for kidnapping a 12-year-old Rochester girl and trying to make her his prostitute. The incident happened in 2013.
