Police: Robber posed as cop, called victim 'stupid'

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Harrisburg police are asking for help in identifying a man who allegedly pretended to be a law enforcement officer before he robbed another man and called the victim "stupid."

Police on Friday released surveillance photos of their suspect in the robbery, which occurred in the 200 block of Pine Street during the early morning of June 24.

The victim, a 67-year-old Camp Hill resident, told investigators he was sleeping in his car when a man who identified himself as Officer Craig awakened him and questioned him about possibly being intoxicated, according to police.

The victim said he got out of the car, was told that he was being placed under arrest and to put his hands on a wall. The robber then took the victim's wallet and ran, then yelled back to the victim that he is "stupid," police said.

The victim's wallet and some identification cards were found the next day on the Riverwalk at Walnut Street. Police said the victim's credit card was used in a downtown shop where they obtained the surveillance photos.

Anyone who recognizes the man in the photos is asked to call Harrisburg police at 717-255-3118 or 717-255-3114.
