Police release sketch of cop impersonator

Earlier today, police officals released a composite sketch of a man who posed as a cop and tried to attack a woman in Pennypack Park earlier this week.
The 25-year-old victim told police she was walking with her infant daughter on Algon Avenue near Tustin about 4:40 p.m. Thursday when she was approached by a husky white man in a gray t-shirt and dark pants.
The man asked “if she had seen his dog,” then claimed to be a cop and tried to drag the woman into the woods, police said.
Police said the woman and her baby managed to escape unharmed, but not before the man stole her cell phone. He fled on foot.
The woman described the imposter as about 5-feet-11, more than 200 pounds, and about 30- to 40-years-old with a blonde buzzcut. Tipsters can contact police at 215-685-3253 or -3254.
