Edmonton, Alberta – The Edmonton Police Service is asking for the public’s assistance in locating a suspect who allegedly impersonated a peace officer, forcibly confined and sexually assaulted a female on the weekend.
On Sunday, June 4, 2017, a female was driving home in the area of Anthony Henday Drive and 127 Street at 1:30 a.m. when she was directed to pull over by a vehicle with flashing lights.
It is reported that a male exited the vehicle with flashing lights, approached her pulled over vehicle and requested that she exit and to get into his vehicle. The female complied with the male, who was dressed in a uniform, assuming he was a legitimate officer.
