Fake cop pulled woman over and assaulted her, Cobb police say

Cobb County police are searching for a man accused of posing as an officer, pulling a woman over and sexually assaulting her.

About 4:45 a.m. Friday, the woman was driving on Terrell Mill Road near Mill Road when she was pulled over by what she thought was a police car, Cobb County police Sgt. Wayne Delk said.

The man approached the car and asked to see the woman’s driver’s license.

As she reached for her information, the suspect grabbed her by the collar, opened the door and began conducting what the victim initially thought was a “pat down,” Delk said.

“Instead, he began to grope and sexually assault the victim as she sat in her seat,” Delk said. “After a brief time, he stopped and let her leave the scene.”

The suspect was driving an unknown make and model car with a light bar on top of it.

The man is believed to be about 30 years old, roughly 6-foot tall with an average build, and short, dark brown hair worn in a buzz cut. His face is unshaven.

He was wearing a dark jacket with a light blue emblem “or some other writing on it,” and a black vest with a star-shaped gold badge on one side and three gold service bars on the other, Delk said.

Underneath the jacket and vest was a tan uniform shirt with a gold emblem on the left side of the collar and a white T-shirt under the uniform shirt. He was also wearing dark pants with a police duty belt with a gun, Taser and radio.

“This uniform combination does not match any uniform of any law enforcement agency operating in Cobb County, be the county or (any) other municipality,” Delk said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Cobb County Police Department’s Crimes Against Persons Unit at 770-499-3945.
