(Scroll down for video) Police are looking to arrest and charge a man, who posed as a police officer and sexually assaulted a woman, according to police reports in Texas.

Carrollton Police said that a man posing as a police officer sexually assaulted a woman handcuffed in the back seat of his car on Thursday morning, on I-35E between Valley View Lane and Valwood Parkway exits.

Between 9:00 and 10:00 a.m., a female driver was detained by a man driving a four-door dark-colored car with dark tinted windows and blue lights inside the windshield.

The suspect told the woman to get out of her car, handcuffed her, and placed in the back of his car, where the assault occurred, according to police spokesperson Nicole Rodriguez.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s or 40s, between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall with a medium build. He has short gray hair. He wore a dark blue uniform with long sleeves, a gold badge with a star shape, a name tag with gold numbers on it, a belt with a police baton, handcuffs, and sunglasses.

The victim did not see a gun or radio on his belt and did not remember seeing any light outside the suspect’s vehicle, which had vinyl seats, but did not have a prisoner cage.

Police have asked the public to be on the lookout for the vehicle, and if you think you are being stopped by someone who is not a police officer, call 911 and drive to a well-lit area before stopping.
