Fake Cops target Hispanics
Tulsa Police are searching for some fake cops who robbed a man at the Bristol Park Apartments on East 45th Street South.
Authorities say a man noticed he was being followed to his home at the apartments around midnight Sunday. Two men in a van got out and approached him.
The victim said the two men appeared to be law officers. They carried guns and radios and had badges attached to their belts.
Police say"Clearly they were impersonating officers.”
The fake cops are apparently targeting Hispanics, a group that detectives say often carry a lot of cash.
