Cops are looking for a police impersonator who grabbed a school girl in Gravesend earlier this month.
The unknown man approached his 13-year-old victim on Monday, March 7, at 8am, in front of 2221 West 5th Street, and tugged on her book bag, requesting her school ID, according to the NYPD. The victim stated that she did not have a school ID, and the wannabe cop told her that he is a police officer and could arrest her for not carrying ID. The perp must have gotten spooked, because he ran off.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-577-TIPS. The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) and then entering TIP577.
