Police: A Man Dressing As a Woman Who’s Impersonating a Police Officer Is Committing Robberies


Originally believed to be a thirtysomething woman about five foot five and 125 pounds, the person suspected of ripping off a bank customer and tricking his way into hospital administrative offices is apparently a man, dressing as a woman, pretending to be a police officer. Police started tracking the man after a robbery on the Upper West Side on March 13, when the suspect used a police shield to lure a customer at a Chase bank to hand over a wallet. The diminutive man remains at large.
