On the evening of June 8 at approximately 6:40PM, a female driver was pulled over by what appeared to be an unmarked police cruiser on Route 15 in Morrisville, headed towards Wolcott.
She stopped in a pull-off on the right side of Route 15 when she saw the blue lights. A male exited his vehicle, approached the female's vehicle, and ordered the female out of the car. While out of the car the suspect groped the female, at which time she was able to get away from him.
The male was described as approximately 6 feet tall, dark hair with a receding hairline and graying on the sides, and a moustache. He was wearing a button up, short sleeve shirt with an embroidered police star with a person's name around the star. He was wearing a handgun and a yellow taser. The male may have injuries to his face from where the victim fought him off.
The vehicle was described as an older model white sedan that had a light bar and spotlight. The victim described the vehicle as a "recycled" police cruiser.
