Mo. police seek man who posed as officer, assaulted woman
VILLA RIDGE, Mo. (AP) -- Authorities in eastern Missouri are searching for a man -- or possibly two men -- who posed as a police officer to pull over a female motorist, then fondled her.
Franklin County Sheriff Gary Toelke says the suspect wore a police uniform and even had police lights on the roof of his car. But his investigation shows that no one from his department was in the area where the woman was stopped.
The incident happened September 9th on Route 100 near Villa Ridge. The victim says she was stopped by a man claiming to be a police officer who put her through a sobriety test, then grabbed her from behind.
A few miles later, the woman says she was stopped again. This time, she called her husband, and the suspect drove off.
