WASHINGTON — Police in Prince William County are searching for a man who impersonated a police officer.
Police said 21-year-old Alex Barmil from Alexandria, Virginia, identified himself as an off-duty police officer when he tried to pull over a driver making a left turn on Sudley Road and Williamson Boulveard in Manassas Monday morning.
When the driver Barmil pulled over asked for identification and the name of his supervisor, Barmil got back in his car and left the area, police said.
Police were not able to arrest Barmil.
Barmil was driving a blue, 2007 Ford Crown Victoria with red and blue flashing lights mounted in the grill and visor area.
He is described as a white man who is 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighs about 140 pounds with curly brown hair and brown eyes.
In June, the county saw a similar incident when a 19-year-old driving a stolen Chevy Silverado with blue flashing lights impersonated a police officer and attempted to pull over a driver. The impersonator was arrested a few days after the incident.
Prince William County police say the two incidents are not related.
