NJ.com reports that an unnamed women was talking with her boyfriend in their parked car in Passaic County NJ at 10:45 PM last Friday when a man who identified himself as a police officer knocked on the window. He told them that they were going to jail unless they paid him $500 right now. They said they didn't carry that much cash on them so he got into the back seat of the car and told them to drive to an ATM while his partner followed them.
The woman mouthed "help me" at a car that had pulled into the parking lot as she was walking back to the car. That driver called Police and as Clifton Police Lt. Robert Bracken says; “Fortunately, officers were available and nearby when the call came in and were able to interrupt the crime in progress.”
The alleged phony cop, Travis Mann and his alleged accomplice, Paul Dunlop have been charged with kidnapping, carjacking and robbery. Mann was also charged with impersonating a police officer and criminal coercion, Bracken said.
