The woman told police that the suspect said he was working a detail in the area and requested to search her car. Police say the alleged victim, not realizing the suspect was posing as a police officer, allowed the man to search her car. Investigators the suspect then left the area.

The suspect is described at 6-foot-tall with a skinny build. Police say he has blonde hair, brown eyes and is clean shaven. He was wearing a navy blue shirt that appeared to be a police officer’s uniform shirt, according to investigators. The woman told police that the suspect was driving a car with a dash board emergency light. There were no other details released about the car.
