FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – A man is accused of impersonating a North Carolina police officer and sexually assaulting a woman he pulled over.

Police said it happened Wednesday in Fayetteville as the suspect stopped a woman driving her car.

The victim said she was driving when a tan or gold “unmarked police car” stopped her with blue flashing lights.

The suspect allegedly approached her and asked her for her driver’s license and registration, and told her he had stopped her for speeding.

The suspect then asked the victim to get out of the car and he took her to some nearby woods and sexually assaulted her, according to officials. He then allowed her to leave.
