A 14-year-old girl was arrested in Baton Rouge on Valentine’s Day for allegedly trying to hire a hitman on a satirical website to kill her ex-boyfriend, police said. 

The Baton Rouge Police Department said detectives arrested the teen Monday afternoon for soliciting to have her 14-year-old ex-boyfriend killed on "Rentahitman.com." 

An administrator of the website called the police and reported the attempted murder. 

"I wish to thank the Baton Rouge Police Department for taking this matter seriously and sincerely hope that the intended victim receives any help and support they need to come out of this okay," Rent-A-Hitman CEO Guido Fanelli said in a statement.
