Police Impersonator Investigated

Kewanee Police are investigating an incident reported at 2:49 am on March 10, 2011 that involved contact with what appears to be someone impersonating a police officer. The victim was a 31 year old female who was not injured.

The victim stated that a white car with slightly tinted windows and a single blue flashing light on top stopped her near the 200 blk of W. McClure Street in Kewanee. She described the suspect as a male Caucasian, 35-45 years old, with a larger build and approximately 6 feet tall. He had dark hair and a mustache. He was wearing a dark colored rain jacket with an unidentified emblem on it.

The male suspect reportedly tried to pull the victim out of her car but she was able to drive away from the threat. The suspect then returned to his vehicle and fled the area toward Beach St South. Officers were unable to locate the suspect vehicle.

Anyone who may have observed what appeared to be a traffic stop near the Hollis and McClure intersection at 2:49 am, Thursday, March 10, 2011, or who may have any other information related to this incident, is urged to call the Kewanee Police Department at 309-853-1911 or Crimestoppers of Henry County at 1-800-227-2324.
