Youngstown police warn public about police impersonator

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Youngstown Police Department continues to search for information about someone impersonating a police officer.

On October 6, 2013 at approximately 4:45 a.m., a 20-year-old woman was driving on I-680 Southbound near the South Avenue exit when she was pulled over by a man posing as a police officer.  The suspect requested that the victim exit her vehicle, and subjected her to a pat down, during which he touched her inappropriately.  Victim was able to flee the scene.

The victim described the suspect as a white male, in his late 50s, approximately 5' 10", 135 lbs., with short black hair and a receding hair line.  The victim described the suspect as extremely thin with sunken in eyes, wearing a light blue uniform shirt with some kind of shiny badge and a tan holster containing a firearm.

The suspect's car is described as a black Ford Crown Victoria with white doors and roof, consistent with a former police car.  The victim observed no markings on the vehicle, and stated that it was in relatively clean condition.  The victim stated that the suspect vehicle had a red and blue oscillating light on the dash board. 

Anyone with any information which may help in this on-going investigation can call the Youngstown Police Department at (330) 747-7911, or they can call (330) 746-CLUE and be eligible for a cash reward for any information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the individual responsible for this crime.
