Police Search For Police Impersonator Who Assaulted Woman
LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)– A man posed as a police officer, pulled over a woman and sexually assaulted her. Now, real law enforcement officers are looking for the man who did this.
Larimer County Sheriff’s investigators said it was a fake traffic stop. The man was driving what looked like a squad car and was dressed like an officer.
It happened at about 10 p.m. Thursday at West 32nd Street and Glade Road near Loveland. The woman was not physically injured and did not go to the hospital.
The man never showed a badge or a gun, but the victim told investigators he clearly portrayed himself as an officer.
“He had one single red light that he activated that caused the victim to pull over. And he approached the victim with the flashlight in his hand. He was wearing a dark navy blue shirt, long sleeved with a patch on the left shoulder that she could not identify. And he asked to see her driver’s license and registration,” said Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Bob Coleman.
The suspect is described as a white man with a medium height and build. He had longer, greying hair and blue eyes.
The suspect vehicle is described as an older police-style sedan, possibly a Chevy Impala. The car had spotlights on both the driver and passenger sides.
