Motorist Punched, Dragged by Police Impersonator in Clayton

CLAYTON, Mo. (KMOX) — Clayton Police are asking the public’s help in finding the man who punched a female motorist this morning while impersonating a police officer.

Chief Tom Byrne said the man stopped the woman on Polo Drive off South Hanley Rd., just after 8 a.m this morning.

Byrnes said he walked up to the woman’s car, opened the door and proceeded to pull her out. He then, “punched her and then took her around to the other side of the car and threw her on the grass.”

Byrne says he never said why he was doing it.

He is described as a late 30’s white man with short brown hair and goatee. He was wearing a gray shirt with a gold oval badge. He may have been wearing a gun belt.

The suspect was driving a dark blue Crown Victoria with dash lights, flashing headlights, and a spotlight.

If you seen this man you’re asked to call the Clayton Police Department at (314)-645-3000.
