Woman says fake cop pulled her over near Ellsworth and University in Denver

DENVER - Denver is the latest metro-area police agency investigating a police impersonator incident.

Denver Police said Monday that a man pulled up behind a woman near Ellsworth Avenue and University Boulevard on April 8 and turned on some blue and white lights.

The woman pulled over and said the impersonator threatened to issue her a ticket, then left.

The woman told police she saw the same man on April 16, but didn't interact with him and didn't get a license plate number, Denver Police said.

The suspect was described as a black man, 45 to 50 years old, who is about 6-feet tall. He had short hair. He was driving an older, four-door, unmarked, white car, police said.

The woman told police the man was wearing a black uniform and had a badge, but it was not a police badge.

In the previous case on March 31 in Aurora, the suspect was also a black man, but he had a distinct scar on his cheek. In the cases on April 16 in Sheridan and April 15/16 in Loveland, the suspect was described as a Caucasian man.

If you have seen the Denver suspect, call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867) and reference case #2014-5001198.
