WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) – The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a reported sexual assault after someone told detectives they had been taken by someone posing as an enforcer. The law came in on Tuesday night.
The sheriff’s office said the incident happened around 7 p.m. at Lot 8500 of FM 972, outside the town of Walburg.
The victim told detectives they were pulled over by what they believe to be a police car with flashing lights.
WCSO said the suspect was a man wearing dark clothing and had a deep voice. No further details about him or his vehicle are available at this time.
The sheriff’s office has provided advice on what to do if you are pulled over by someone you suspect is impersonating a police officer.
- Turn on the flash, drive over the speed limit and call 911 from your cell phone. Tell the 911 dispatcher that you are worried someone is trying to pull you over and need to verify they are law enforcement.
- If you don’t have a cell phone, you can drive to a well-lit area, like a parking lot or a densely populated area.
- Don’t run away from the car trying to pull you over.
- Do not get out of the vehicle until the dispatcher can confirm that you are being pulled over by an actual officer.
- Report anything suspicious to 911; Don’t wait to make a report.
