(KINGMAN COUNTY, Kan.) — A counterfeit cop...hunting the highways...his prey could be anyone he's able to pull over.
"I'm not too worried about myself," Kingman County farmer Nick Panek says. "I have means to take care of myself. It's my wife and the women I think we need to be worried about."
The first incident happened on July 2nd near Kansas City. A man driving a car made up to look like a Kansas State Patrol car--lights and all--pulled over an 18-year-old woman at night and sexually assaulted her.
The second time was just a few days ago halfway across the state near the tiny town of Nashville. It happened in the middle of the afternoon in a very remote area of Southwest Kingman County, a bit off the beaten path where traffic is light and where law enforcement officers are rarely seen. The victim was a man who says the bogus officer handcuffed him and searched his car, then let him go. The perp was driving a Ford Crown Victoria with official markings and appeared to be carrying a gun.
