Youngstown woman says police impersonator sexually harassed her

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -  A Youngstown woman says that a man impersonating a police officer sexually harassed her on Interstate 680 last Sunday morning.

According to a police report, the 20-year-old woman said she was driving on the interstate near the South Avenue exit after picking her mother up from her job at Schwebel's around 6 a.m. when she was pulled over by a car that she thought was an unmarked police vehicle.

The victim said the car looked like a Ford Crown Victoria with a black front and white doors. The car also had an oscillating light on the dashboard.

She also said that the man — described as a white male in his late fifty's at about 135 pounds with short black hair and a receding hair line  was wearing a light blue shirt similar to a police officer with a badge on it and a tan gun belt with a large knife in it.

The man allegedly told the woman that he was a police officer and was going to conduct a pat down but started fondling her instead. The victim quickly became uncomfortable and asked for another police officer before getting back in her car and speeding away.

Youngstown Police officers noted in the police report that they have no car at the department  described by the victim, and that none of the officers wear uniforms like the outfit the suspect was wearing.

No suspects have been identified at this time.
