Man impersonating officer urged student into his car
October 26, 2016
A man identifying himself as an undercover Foothill-De Anza Police officer attempted to lure a female student into his car at 8:40p.m. on Wednesday, Oct 19, according to a Foothill-De Anza Police email.
The incident took place in Lot A. The man reportedly told the student that she “shouldn’t be walking alone” and that he should “give her a ticket.” At that point the man urged her to get into his car. The student told police the man’s comments were forceful and aggressive, and that there were two other passengers in the vehicle.
When another car drove between her and the man’s car, she was able to escape to her own vehicle.
The driver is described as Middle Eastern, with a thin build, and hair shaved on the sides and slightly longer and wavy on top. He spoke with a slight accent and wore a grey T-shirt. The car is described as a black four-door BMW sedan, possibly a 2010-2013 model, with heavily tinted windows.
The student could not describe the other two passengers because of the tint on the windows.
No one at Foothill-De Anza Police could be reached for comment because they cannot talk about ongoing investigations
