Posted:
STORM LAKE, Iowa (KTIV) -

Three people face charges of prostitution after they were caught outside a Storm Lake, Iowa, motel, naked.

Police say 37-year-old Jason Buckallew, of Independence, Missouri, hired two prostitutes from an online escort service last Friday.

The two women, 21-year-old Rachelle Liesinger, and 23-year-old Tiffany Bieganowski, both of Sioux Falls, went to Buckallew's room, got him undressed, stole his money and fled. A Storm Lake police officer saw one of the women trying to run away. She claimed she had been sexually assaulted. The officer then chased Buckallew. Police found him hiding behind a vehicle.

Other officers saw the other woman get into a vehicle in the parking lot. Though she left the scene, police caught her later.

Police determined one of the women had a 6-month-old child in the vehicle along with the driver. Police removed the child and turned him over to the Department of Human Services.

Buckallew is charged with prostitution. Liesinger and Bieganowski are charged with prostitution and theft. Another man, 23-year-old Patrick Lee, of Sioux Falls is charged with facilitating the meeting.
