SPD investigating reports of bogus officer
The Shreveport Police Department is investigating a report that a man allegedly posing as a law enforcement officer accosted a woman in east Shreveport last night.
At approximately 9:00 p.m. last night, an adult female victim reported to officers that she was driving in the 4100 block of Youree Drive when she heard what she described as a police siren and then observed flashing lights behind her vehicle. She immediately pulled over and was contacted by a male suspect who directed her to pull into a nearby parking lot. She complied and, once in the lot, the man approached her and ordered her to exit her car. She did so and the suspect began to, according to the victim, fondle her. At that point she began to resist his advances and he subsequently pointed what she described as a Taser at her. The victim continued to fight her assailant at which time he got back into his car and fled the scene.
The suspect is described as a white male with reddish brown hair styled in a high and tight hair cut, just over six feet tall weighing approximately 210 pounds. He was wearing some type of dark navy blue uniform and was driving a Ford Crown Victoria that was black and white in color. Anyone having any information regarding the identity of this suspect is urged to call Shreveport Police detectives at 318-673-6955 or Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
