A 29-year-old woman from Pearland, Texas is accused of pretending to be a fake autistic twin sister to hire and con a caregiver, a bizarre hoax that was strictly for sexual gratification, Pearland police said Thursday.
Rachel Childs was arrested earlier this month on charges of felony burglary of a habitation with intent to commit assault and misdemeanor indecent exposure, after the bizarre plan, in which police say she pretended to be her own non-existent autistic twin sister in an attempt to lure the man into having sex with her, was exposed by her intended target.

According to police, Childs contacted a male caregiver online and hired him to look after her made-up twin, whom she described as autistic.
The unnamed caretaker was instructed to pick up the twin at Childs’ residence in Pearland, take her to his own house for the night and bring her back the following morning, reported Houston Chronicle.
Police spokesman Jason Wells said while at the caregiver’s home, Childs, posing as her special-needs twin, engaged in ‘sexually oriented conduct’ towards the man, which raised alarms bells with him.
The caregiver concluded that the woman’s behavior was inconsistent with that of a person with autism and decided to look into Childs’ background.
After doing some digging, the man learned that Childs has no siblings and contacted the local police department.
An investigation was launched, which determined that Childs had made up the autistic twin for the purpose of sexual gratification, according to police.
Childs turned herself in on January 3 and was later released on bond.
According to an arrest report, Childs works as a clerk at a Houston law firm specializing in family law and divorce cases.
Police are asking anyone who believes they have been a victim of a similar crime to contact them at 281-997-4151.
