ELKHART, Ind.--- A woman escaped after getting pulled over by a suspicious cop in Elkhart Monday night.

Now police are on the hunt for an impersonator.

The woman said she was pulled over at about 10:15 p.m. Monday evening on CR 17, near US 20.

She said the man was wearing a black hooded sweat shirt and jeans, but there were flashing red and white lights on his car.

The man told the victim she'd been stopped for speeding, but couldn't show any ID.

The woman then drove away and proceeded to call 911.

Anyone with information should call police.

The Elkhart County Sheriff's Department says a police officer, sheriff's deputy, state trooper, or other law enforcement officer will either be in a fully marked police vehicle with red and blue flashing lights, or if it is not fully marked, the vehicle will still have red and blue flashing lights, and the officer will be in proper Elkhart County law enforcement uniform.

The Sheriff's Department is asking anyone who questions the legitimacy of the person to ask for proper identification and immediately contact 911, if there is any doubt.
