DAYTON, OH (NBC) - An Ohio woman is in jail on sex charges after pretending to be a man.

Patricia Dye, 31, is in the Warren County jail after police say she cut her hair and pretended to be a 14-year-old boy, so she could allegedly have sex with a 16-year-old girl.

Dye reportedly used the alias "Matt Abrams" to get familiar with the girl, and even met the girl's parents.

Authorities started investigating Dye after the girl ran away from the hotel where the two were staying.

Police say Dye may have had other victims and has pretended to be a boy for a while.
