WILMINGTON, Del. (WBOC/AP)- Police in Delaware say a man impersonating a law enforcement officer pulled over a woman and frisked her.           

Delaware State Police said it occurred in the 500 block of Marsh Road in Wilmington the evening of July 14, when a 26-year-old woman saw flashing blue lights behind her and pulled over. The incident was not immediately reported.           

Police said a man in a dark blue uniform with a yellow stripe down each pant leg approached the car, asked her why she was in the area and accused her of having drugs. He then opened her door, removed her from the vehicle and frisked her, before searching her car.           

He went back to his SUV and fled the scene.           

The woman was not injured and no property was taken, according to police.

The suspect, who did not identify himself or claim to be with any agency, was additionally described as a black male, bald head, and with a muscular build. The suspect vehicle was described as a dark blue SUV with an all blue light bar on the roof and no other markings or signage.
