MOORE, Oklahoma -

Police are on the hunt for a man posing as a police officer accused of battery, robbery and sexual misconduct. Officers are asking for the public's help to put an end to the impostor's crime spree.

Police in Moore say the fake officer preyed on two victims just this week. Now, officers throughout the metro are on alert for a man they say is raking up felonies left and right.

"Some people get their kicks in different ways … that's wrong," area resident Steven King said.

On Monday, police say a man driving an Impala and dressed in police clothing pulled over a man near a gas station at I-35 and NW 27th Street in Moore. Officers say the fake officer ordered the driver to get out of his car. Then, police say the impostor placed his victim in handcuffs, beat him and stole his wallet containing nearly $700.

"A lot of crimes have been committed all at one time," Sgt. Jeremy Lewis with Moore police said.

Employees at the gas station said, sometime before or after the attack, the suspect filled up his Impala with gas, paid for the gas and left.

One day later, police say the impostor stopped a woman walking along City Avenue in Moore. The woman says the fake officer ordered her into his car and drove a couple of blocks before he asked her to show him her chest. That's when she left the car, ran away and called 911.

"There are several felony charges here and very serious crimes," Lewis said.

Police have released the following description of the suspect:

  • Black man
  • 6' 4" tall
  • Bald
  • Heavy, muscular build

Police say the suspect is driving a dark colored Chevy Impala with lights in the front grill. Police in Moore do not drive Impalas, and they do not use their undercover cars to pull people over. So, in Moore, look for lights on the top and the city seal on the side of police cars. Police urge anyone who is suspicious while being pulled over to call 911.

Officers hope surveillance video from both incidents will lead them to the phony officer.
