LaSalle Police is investigating a possible fake cop.

They say that a young female was riding her bicycle on Malden Road near Delmar Street on June 12th, 2020, between 2pm and 3pm when she was approached by a male driving a dark coloured sedan southbound on Malden Road.

She heard a siren activate momentarily, and the male driver gestured for her to pull over into the parking lot at Malden Square Plaza. The vehicle pulled in, and the lone male exited the vehicle. The male asked her a few questions, but the police say he did not ask her any personal details such as her name or address.

The entire interaction was brief, after which the male advised her that she could leave.

The vehicle is described as a newer sedan that was dark in colour. The vehicle appeared to be equipped with a push bar on the front bumper and may have had lights inside the front windshield that were not activated. The vehicle did not have any markings that would identify it as a police vehicle.

The male was described as white, muscular, approximately 6″ tall and wearing a police ballistic vest with the words “LaSalle Police” on the front. He was also wearing dark cargo pants and a collared shirt with the word “Police” on the sleeves.

In addition, he also had on a pair of mirrored sunglasses, a black ball cap with no markings and a surgical type mask. He appeared to have dark brown hair and had a deep raspy voice. The male did not identify himself as a police officer at any time during the interaction.

Police are asking that if anyone witnessed this event or has any details that may assist in this investigation to contact them at 519 969-5210 or Crime Stoppers at 519 258-8477.
