DENVER (CBS4) – Denver police have released a sketch of a police impersonator from an incident that occurred on July 29.
The incident occurred around 9 p.m. on Park Avenue West near Globeville Road. A woman was stopped by an unmarked, white, Crown Victoria with red and blue lights on the top of the vehicle.
“This male approached the female’s vehicle and identified himself as a Denver police officer. The male asked for her driver’s license and vehicle registration,” Sonny Jackson with Denver police said in a prepared statement.
