Investigators with the Brazos County Sheriff's Office continue searching for a suspect who reportedly sexually assaulted a woman while posing as one of them.
Officials say a man impersonating a police officer pulled over a woman on Highway 30 near the area of Bird Pond Road Wednesday night.
The woman says he asked her to get out of her vehicle, and when she did, he sexually assaulted her in the back seat of the car.
Earlier that day, there was a similar incident in the Dallas area. Carrollton police say a fake officer stopped a driver on Interstate 35 and raped her in his vehicle in a daytime attack.
A third report about a cop impersonator was made just after midnight Thanksgiving Day, this time in San Antonio. Police say the female victim was able to fight off a man who pulled her over and then tried to force her into the vehicle.
Monday on First News at Four, Chief Deputy Jim Stewart with the Brazos County Sheriff's Office talked about the latest details about the case and shared information about what drivers can do to feel safe when being pulled over by law enforcement officials.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the Brazos County Sheriff's Office immediately at 979-361-3888.
