Sangamon County Undersheriff Jack Campbell is warning again of a man who is impersonating an officer and pulling women over. Campbell says it happened for the second time early Wednesday morning, when a man pulled over a woman near Old Jacksonville and Farmingdale Roads. He says she sensed he wasn't a real officer and fled before the man made contact. This time the suspect had a red and blue flashing light, unlike the incident on Monday, where a man stopped a 16-year-old girl with a white flashing light. The 16-year-old did stop and the man did grope her before she fled.
Police are looking for a man who is about 50 years old, 5'10 inches to 6' tall with a thin build and possibly salt and pepper hair. His voice is high pitched and has a southern accent.
The car used in both incidents is described as a small, old white four-door car with a beat up, discolored hood.
