Police in Camden, NJ are searching for a man who reportedly impersonated a cop and sexually assaulted on woman on Friday.

The woman, an admitted prostitute, told police she was in a vehicle with a customer on the 200 block of Sycamore Street when the suspect approached them and said he was a police officer. He asked the customer for identification, then told him to leave. Police say he then assaulted the woman.

The man was wearing a blue or black button-down shirt with a shield and a patch that said “police.” He also wore blue or black cargo pants, black boots, black gloves and a blue or black baseball-cap that had “police” written above its brim.
