PHOENIX -- A woman has been arrested by Phoenix police, accused of engaging in sex acts with teenage boys.

Phoenix police said 35-year-old Jennifer Dempsey is being held on suspicion of several counts of sexual conduct with a minor.

Dempsey is accused of portraying herself online to at least two victims as a 16-year-old girl who was pregnant.

Police said Dempsey is accused of contacting 14-year-old to 16-year-old boys through Facebook and then meeting them for sex acts.

They also said Dempsey convinced her family that she had cancer for the past five years.

She reportedly shaved her head, bought wigs and had a fake chemotherapy port in her chest.

Police said Dempsey used the cancer claim to avoid arrest.

They didn't immediately know Tuesday afternoon if she has a lawyer yet.
