POLICE IMPERSONATION ROBBERY —
Police said that they are searching for two individuals who identified themselves as police officers and robbed a man in Elmhurst on Sept. 19.
Around 3:20 p.m., the two unidentified individuals—who were driving a gray sedan—approached a 60-year-old man in the vicinity of Ithaca and Britton avenues and told him that they were police officers. The suspect who was driving the sedan was wearing an identification holder around his neck. After he exited the car, he demanded that the victim raise his arms. The other suspect exited the vehicle and acted as a lookout. The first suspect frisked the victim and removed approximately $100 from his right pants pocket. Both suspects re-entered the sedan and left the location to parts unknown. No injuries were reported during the incident.
The first suspect is described as a six-foot Hispanic man with a light complexion who weighs approximately 250 pounds and was last seen wearing a green long-sleeve shirt, black sweat pants and white sneakers. The other suspect was described as a Hispanic man with a dark complexion who was last seen wearing a light-colored shirt.
