JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Jonesboro Police is investigating a possible police impersonator that followed a woman late Thursday night.
According to the police report, a woman claims a white Ford Crown Victoria with police light on the dash followed her Thursday night until she pulled into a friend's home.
The woman told Region 8 News it all started once she left work on Matthews Avenue late Thursday.
"I noticed a white car, driving kind of slow, but it's a hospital area so it could've been anybody," she said.
She said once she left her place of employment, the vehicle then followed her.
She told police the car followed her onto Kitchen Street, and she then made several unorthodox turns on side streets, and the car kept following.
"I wanted to make a right turn but I got in the left lane...turned my left blinker on. I waited, he got in the lane with me...did the same thing. I turned right and he went with me. And it was clear at that point that he was following me."
She said once she confirmed her suspicions, she tried to get as much of a description of who was following her.
"I realized that he had some kind of light attachment on his dashboard," she said. The only description the woman could give police was the driver was a white male, about 30-40 years old with dark bushy hair.
A short while later she called a friend to see if she could drive to her house and meet her in the driveway.
She has this advice for anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation: "Especially being a female, alone, you have to pay attention to your surroundings."
That incident also began on Matthews Avenue, and the suspect car was a White Ford Crown Victoria.
Jonesboro Police is asking anyone with any information about these incident to call CrimeStoppers at 935-STOP.
