Suspect impersonating Sherriffs?

This is a bad start to the new year, just yesterday there was a horrible home invasion robbery. And today was the state of the city address. (No doubt there were a number of Sheriff's over there for a free lunch as opposed to patrolling) Hopefully this offender is not a repeat offender. This story as written below also does not make sense as they noted that he presented himself as a police officer (Sheriff maybe?) but then below they note "He was wearing a gray sweat shirt with red writing and black sweat pants with white stripes down the sides." How do you pull off being an officer dressed like that. Something is not right here. Also lets hope that this is not a real cop. Finally there is not much hope of catching this guy if we leave it up to "CSI" Lakewood Sheriffs.

Fake Cop Rapes, Kidnaps Girl, 14, In Lakewood

Sheriff's deputies Tuesday asked for the public's help in finding a man dressed up as a police officer before raping and kidnapping a 14-year-old girl in Lakewood.

The man shined a flashlight at two girls and presented himself as a police officer as he got out of a sport utility vehicle Friday at about 8:45 p.m. in the 12000 block of Gradwell Street, near Hawaiian Gardens, according to Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Al Garcia.

The suspect then punched one girl, who fell to the ground, as the man grabbed the other girl, forcing her into his vehicle, Garcia said.

He drove north on Claretta Avenue, then raped the girl before dropping her off near where he first grabbed her, Garcia said.

The man was described as white, 20 to 30 years old, bald, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 200 pounds. He was wearing a gray sweat shirt with red writing and black sweat pants with white stripes down the sides.

He was driving a white, four-door older sport utility vehicle with tinted rear windows.

Investigators asked anyone with information on the case to call the Special Victims Bureau at (866) 247-5877.
