ATLANTA — An urgent manhunt is underway across metro Atlanta for a police impersonator who has already sexually assaulted two women.
Police told Channel 2 investigative reporter Aaron Diamant that early on, investigators thought they had a very solid lead but it didn't pan out as they hoped.
Now Atlanta and Cobb County police are asking for the public's help in their full-court press to find the dangerous impersonator.
“I really can’t state strong enough how seriously law enforcement takes this case,” Maj. Michael O’Connor, with the Atlanta Police Department, said. “The biggest concern we have right now is that this person looked enough like a police officer and two cases we believe are similar enough to think that it’s potentially the same suspect, between us and Cobb, that two people have stopped for him.”
The first attack happened along Nash Road in northwest Atlanta and the other took place a few hours later on Terrell Mill Road in east Cobb County early Friday morning. In both cases, women said they were sexually assaulted after bogus traffic stops.
