Police seek information about possible imposter

Comments () A Text Size

Denton police are seeking the public’s help in locating a person they say is impersonating a police officer.

At 2:10 a.m. Friday, police said, a woman was stopped on Airport Road by what she thought was a police vehicle using emergency lights. While getting her insurance and driver’s license information, the male driver of the vehicle tried to attack her, according to a news release from the police department.

Ryan Grelle, police spokesman, said that the woman was able to fight back and cause the man to “run back to his vehicle and drive away.”

Since the area where the woman was driving was dark, police said she was unable to describe the man or his vehicle in detail. The news release states he was wearing dark clothing and his vehicle had a red and blue light bar.

Police urge drivers to proceed to a well lit area or the police department and call 911 if they are leery of who might be pulling them over.

If anyone has information about the incident or was in the area at the time it occurred, they are asked to call Sgt. Bobby Smith at 940-349-7971 or send a text message with the information to Tip411.
