Authorities: Man assaulted a woman while pretending to be a police officer

Authorities are looking for a man who allegedly assaulted a woman while impersonating a police officer.

The Middlesex District Attorney’s office said Wednesday the suspect, driving a black Chevy Impala with tinted windows, used a spotlight to “pull over” a woman driving on I-495 north in Tewksbury during a morning in early January this year or late December 2015.

The victim told police she believed the car was an unmarked police cruiser, bearing dealer or repair plates. She told police the driver of the car approached her requesting her license and registration. When he returned to her car, he assaulted her “by inappropriate touching” before the victim was able to drive away, according to the DA’s office:

The suspect is described as a dark skinned Hispanic or Dominican male with no accent, approximately 5’3”, thin face, sunken eyes, 130-140 pounds clean shaven, short tight hair, with stud earrings in each ear. The victim stated that he was wearing a black short sleeve shirt and jeans and had a gold star shaped badge hung around his neck and a silver large face watch on his left wrist.

Anyone who has experienced a similar incident or has any information is asked to contact state police at 978- 475-3800 or detectives assigned to the DA’s office at 781-897-6621.
