Authorities search for cop impersonator after reported assault

BENTON COUNTY (KWWL) -- Authorities are asking for help finding a man posing as a police officer.  This comes after a man impersonating a cop reportedly assaulted a woman Sunday in Benton County.

It happened around 11:00 a.m. on Highway 30 near the Watkins turnoff.  The Iowa State Patrol says a woman pulled over for what she thought was a police car.  She said it was a sedan with dash mounted red and blue lights.

We're told at some point, the man assaulted the woman.  She was able to knock the man to the pavement and get away.

If you have any information, call Iowa State Patrol District #11 at (319) 396-4414 or (319) 396-1944 or the Benton County Sheriff's Office at (319) 472-2337.

You can always request to see a badge when pulled over, or drive to a public place.
