Officers are appealing for information and asking the public to be vigilant after a report of a member of the public impersonating a police officer in Leicester.It was reported that around 9.45am on Monday 21 June, a man was cycling on Ethel Road when a small black Ford drove past him and waved him down.The man put a small blue light on top of his car and got out wearing a stab vest with “police” printed on it.He told the cyclist, who was riding a bike of high value, he needed a licence to use the cycle lane and a heated discussion took place.A woman then approached and the man left the scene.He is described as white, 5’11, in his late 20s with brown hair with a beard.PC Ben Hill said: “We would ask the public to be vigilant and if in any doubt ask an officer for their identification.“We would also like to hear from anyone who saw this incident or from anyone who was driving along Ethel Road and may have captured it on dash cam.”Anyone with any information is asked to call 101 quoting reference 21*347219.You can also visit https://www.leics.police.uk/ro/report/.
