Police are looking for a man who impersonated a police officer and tried to get a teenager into his vehicle at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday in Wilson.

A 16-year-old girl told police that a black, full-size SUV approached her in the parking lot of Square One Exxon at 1503 Northampton St.

She told police the SUV was operated by a light-skinned black male in his late 30s or early 40s. She said he was about six feet tall and had a medium build with a short afro and long sideburns.


The male was wearing a black law enforcement style uniform, but with no patches or badge.

The man told the girl  that she had warrants for her arrest and she should get in his vehicle.

She refused.

The male pulled out a stun gun and activated it.

He repeated that he had an arrest warrant and she needed to get in his vehicle.

She again refused again and fled.

Anyone with information about the  incident is urged to contact Detective Marc Crisafulli of the Wilson Borough Police Department at 610-258-8542.
