Suspect Impersonating a Police Officer Wanted In Sexual Assault

By EGP Staff Report

The California Highway Patrol is asking anyone who may have witnessed or have information that can help them identify a man who sexually assaulted a woman earlier this month while impersonating a law enforcement officer to come forward.

According to the CHP, the assault took place Nov. 7 on the eastbound I-105 west of Lakewood Blvd at 2:30 p.m. That’s when, according to the CHP, the male suspect presented himself as a law enforcement official, signaled a woman to stop and then inappropriately touched the woman under the guise of a search, authorities said.

Affixed to the shirt were shoulder patches, a silver “star” type badge and a silver name tag. The suspect had a black police type utility belt affixed with a pistol and other equipment.
