Police Impersonator Stops Woman in Colorado

April 03, 2014  | 

Police in Aurora, Colo., are investigating the report of a man who impersonated an officer, stopped a woman's car at night and grabbed the victim by the hair Monday night.

The victim told investigators that a dark sedan — possibly a black Ford Crown Victoria with a flashing red light — pulled in behind her car.  The woman, thinking she was being stopped by police, pulled into an apartment complex, the Denver Post reports.

A man wearing dark clothing, but no badge or police patch, approached her car.

The woman asked for a badge number, and the man "grabbed the victim by the hair and reached into the vehicle and attempted to remove the keys from the ignition," police said. "The victim fought back by punching the suspect in the face."

The man then fled the scene, police said.

People need to use more common sense regarding these stops. The police impersonators is on the rise, and people need to equip themselves better.

@ Really, when you say " people need to equip themselves better"I hope you mean with knowledge not weapons. Because with the latter a lot of innocent people could be hurt or killed.

This wannabe needs to be caught and fast. Stopping this female and grabbing her hair indicates what his intentions are. It doesn't take a genius to figure it out. Hopefully this asshole gets bullet to the dome before he gets a chance to dowhat he's setting out to do.
