Man pretended to be peace officer, sexually assaulted woman: Edmonton police

The Edmonton Police Service (EPS) is asking for help finding a suspect who allegedly impersonated a peace officer, pulled over a female driver, got her into his vehicle and sexually assaulted her.

Police said it happened on Sunday, June 4 at around 1:30 a.m. when the 25-year-old woman was driving home near Anthony Henday Drive and 127 Street.

A vehicle with flashing lights got her to pull over, EPS said. Then, a man who was wearing a uniform got out of the vehicle, police said.

“He approached the vehicle in the same way we would approach the vehicle,” Acting Staff Sgt. Barry Fairhurst said. “He came up to the vehicle just directly behind her… He identified himself as a peace officer and asked her to exit the vehicle.”
