BROOKLYN PARK, Md. (AP) — Anne Arundel County authorities say they are looking for a man who robbed a person in Brooklyn Park while posing as a police officer.

Police were called to Kramme and Doris avenues early Tuesday morning for a report of police impersonator. A 19-year-old man told police that he and his girlfriend were walking down the street when a man inside a Ford Crown Victoria pulled up and shined a spotlight on them.

The Capital of Annapolis newspaper reports the driver, who wore a silver badge around his neck, put the man in plastic handcuffs and said he had violated a curfew. Police say the man took cash and other personal property from the victim before fleeing. Authorities say the man also was armed with a Taser.
