The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a report of someone impersonating a police officer, conducting a traffic stop and attempting to rob a woman at gunpoint near Conroe this evening.
The woman said she was northbound on I-45 just south of FM 1488 around 9:15 p.m. when an unmarked Dodge Charger with a police package initiated a traffic stop, apparently using a strobe flashlight. The man got out of his vehicle and ordered her out of hers. Still believing he was an officer stopping her for a traffic violation, the woman complied and stepped out of her vehicle. She then realized the man was wearing a stocking mask and brandishing a gun.
The bandit demanded his victim hand over her money and credit cards. Instead, the terrified woman kicked the man in the groin, jumped back into her car and fled.
No further descriptions are available at this time.
