Police: Suspect believed to be officer stopped postal worker in Suffolk


SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A suspect believed to be an officer stopped a postal worker in in downtown Suffolk, according to police.

Suffolk police said the incident took place in the area of Bank Street and Pinner Street shortly before 11 a.m. on Dec. 4.

A postal worker reportedly told police she believed that she heard a siren behind her and pulled over. Someone approached her marked truck, and had a conversation with her before leaving. 

Police said the suspect was described as being a 45 to 50 year-old man with glasses and a mustache. He wore a long-sleeved black polo and black jeans. 

His vehicle is described as a four-door Taurus, royal blue with black trim. 

An investigation into the incident remains ongoing.

A Suffolk man was charged last week after police say he stopped a person while pretending to be a police officer.
