Sleepy Eye Police are looking for a man they say impersonated an officer in order to rob a woman.

Officials say a woman left the Casey’s General Store just after 7:00 a.m. Sunday and was westbound on Maple Street when a vehicle with red and blue flashing lights pulled up behind her and she stopped.

The victim says a man walked up to her driver’s side window and told her to hand over her wallet and when she did, he took off.

Investigators say the car was an older style black and white police vehicle and the perpetrator was a thinly built black man, approximately 5’7” to 5’10”, clean-shaven, with a southern accent.

Anyone with further information is asked to call Sleepy Eye Police.
