GLEN BURNIE, Md. (AP) — A Washington D.C. area police officer is facing a string of charges in Maryland after authorities say he paid a 15-year-old girl for sex and then took back the money at gunpoint.

Anne Arundel County police officials said 27-year-old Chukwuemeka Ekwonna of Glenn Dale was arrested Thursday and charged with armed robbery, assault, third-degree sex offense, reckless endangerment, prostitution and a weapon offense.

Court documents show the teen recently told officials that she was robbed by a man she met through social media and offered her $80 for sex.

Authorities said the pair met in January and after they had sex, she says the police officer, later identified as Ekwonna, pointed a gun at her and demanded his money back.

Law enforcement officials in Washington announced Ekwonna was fired Friday. No attorney is listed in online court records.
