Man offers to be woman's pimp
A woman called DeKalb County police after a man offered to prostitute her on the Internet on Tuesday evening.

The 40-year-old woman said she was walking home from the bus stop at the intersection of Lawrenceville Highway and Montreal Road when two men approached her at about 6:30 p.m., the police report said.

"Hey, baby," one of the men said. "Want to make some money? I can hook you up."

"What do you mean, 'Hook me up?'" the woman said.

"You know. Get you some dates. Put you on the Internet."

"I would never sell my body!" the woman screamed. "I don't solicit for sex or anything else! I am too expensive! I would never sell my body for sex!"

The woman walked to her room at the Knight's Inn at 2942 Lawrenceville Highway and called police.
