The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office arrested a man after he called 911 Saturday night and told dispatchers he "needed a woman."
A spokesman for the sheriff's office said the responding deputy ran the criminal history of Kareem Collins and learned that he was a convicted sex offender.
Police say Collins had failed to contact the proper authorities when he moved from New Orleans to Slidell.
"Our would-be Romeo had failed to contact the proper authorities when he moved from New Orleans to Slidell – a big no-no for convicted sex offenders," said authorities in a news release.
Collins didn't get the woman he was looking for Saturday night, but he did get a ride to the St. Tammany Parish Jail after he was arrested for failure to register for a change of address.
