Police are looking for two phony cops who they say sexually assaulted and robbed a 67-year-oldwoman during a “traffic stop” last month in Chelsea.
The woman told police she was driving in front of 345 West 16th St. around 2:30 a.m. on Feb. 29,when two men driving another vehicle signaled for her to stop.
The men then reportedly identified themselves as police officers and moved the victim to another location a few blocks away. There, the victim was allegedly sexually assaulted, and her purse — containing a tablet computer and $135 — was stolen.
Police released surveillance footage of the suspects’ red CamaroThursday.
One suspect is described as a bald Hispanic man in his 40s, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and 220 pounds, wearing a gray T-shirt and blue jeans. The second is described as a black male in his 40s, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and 210 pounds, wearing a black baseball cap and white jogging suit.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’sCrime Stoppers Hotlineat 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
