Chesapeake, Va. – A woman described a terrifying experience to the Chesapeake Police Department. She says someone impersonating an officer pulled her over and tried to convince her to get out of her vehicle.

This happened on the night of August 14th.

She says she was going eastbound on Military Highway at Auburn Drive when a vehicle with a blue light pulled up behind her.  She thought it was a traffic stop, so she pulled to the side of the road.

The woman says a man about 6 feet tall believed to be in his late 20s with an athletic build got out of the car. He was wearing a dark blue or black uniform with nothing on it other than patches on the sleeve, a duty belt and dark uniform pants. She says he had a strong jaw line, short brown or black hair and he was clean shaven.

She said he had a light complexion but was unsure of his ethnicity. She was not sure if he was carrying a gun or not at the time.

The woman says the man came up to her door and did not announce himself as an officer. She says he told her a tail light was out and he needed her to step out of the car. She became suspicious when he never asked her for a license or registration .

She says the man became agitated and she drove away. The man was driving a newer model dark blue or black Chevy Impala with a blue light on the dashboard.
