A Tonawanda woman was arrested after planning to perform a sexual act on an undercover officer, with her child nearby.

Amherst Police say 25-year-old Ciara Steffen arranged to meet the officer at a hotel, and told him that she would leave her 14-month-old child in the bathroom while she engaged in the sexual act.

Authorities say Steffen used Backpage.com to offer escort services.

Steffen was taken into custody after a brief struggle and charged with endangering the welfare of a child, prostitution and resisting arrest.

Erie County Child Protective Services has been notified.
