35-year-old Maryam Simpson of New Jersey, used Craigslist to advertise her services.

Simpson, who goes by the name “Freddy” on Craigslist, invited the client to her friend’s home in Belleville, to perform the services.

After she was done, the client, Jessica Mahecha, 25, said that she was not happy with the job. The two women then got into an argument.

Simpson then grabbed a bottle of pepper spray and sprayed it in her client’s face. She fled from the apartment before police arrived, authorities said.

The victim was treated at the home for the minor injuries that she suffered from the pepper spray.

Police went to look for Simpson. She was located and arrested. She was released after posting $35,000 bond.
