Shrewsbury Police Searching For Kissing Cop Impersonator | Crime
The Shrewsbury Police Department is warning residents after a man impersonating a police officer pulled a woman over and tried to kiss her.
According to Police Chief Jeffrey Keller, around 9 p.m. Monday a woman reported that she was driving northbound on Shrewsbury Avenue from Weil Avenue when she noticed a late 1990’s to early 2000 white Chevrolet Impala traveling behind her. The vehicle had red circle taillights and red & blue flashing lights in the front windshield with no markings on the side.
The vehicle pulled directly behind the woman. Believing the vehicle to be a police car, the woman pulled to the side of the road, near Murdoch Avenue, and stopped. The other vehicle pulled behind her and stopped.
Authorities said the woman believed she was being stopped by a police officer because her car had a defective headlight. Upon stopping, the operator of the other vehicle exited his vehicle and approached the woman.
When the suspect approached, the woman told the individual she had just been stopped a few minutes earlier by another officer who gave her a citation for the defective headlight.
While speaking with the victim, the suspect kissed her on the cheek and attempted to kiss her on the lips. The suspect then indicated the victim would already be paying enough on the citation she received earlier and told her she could leave.
The woman then drove off. She saw the suspect return to his vehicle and drive north on Shrewsbury Avenue towards Big Bend.
The suspect is described as a white male, 22-30 years old, 5’7”, 180-190lbs, blonde hair with flat top cut & spiked in front, wearing a police style uniform and a gun on his left hip.
No other incidents have been reported to the Shrewsbury Police Department.
Anyone seeing a vehicle and/or individual matching the descriptions is asked to contact the dispatch center at 314-645-3000.
