Pregnant Woman Says She Was Assaulted, Robbed by Police Impersonators

Police say three men who were pretending to be police officers robbed and assaulted a pregnant woman in Maryland, punching her in the stomach.

Maryland State Police say the woman was driving from New York to Norfolk, Virginia, Thursday when she was pulled over by what she thought was a police car. The 38-year-old woman is from Brooklyn, New York. 

The victim said one of the men approached the car and sprayed pepper spray into the car before spraying it on a towel that he held over her face. 

The woman said the man then punched her in the stomach when she got out of the car. She said that another man who was holding a handgun stole her purse, which contained cash and an expensive jeweled belt. 

Police have not found the suspects.
