impersonating a police officer
A Westchester County rabbi has been fired from his post at the helm of an adult Jewish learning center on the Upper East Side, after being accused of pretending to be a police officer and harassing motorists on at least three occasions.
A second victim has now come forward in the case of a Westchester County rabbi accused of impersonating a police officer.
A man who recently pleaded guilty to faking his own death was in trouble again this week – this time for impersonating a police officer and trying to kidnap women in Nassau County.
On July 21, a man knocked on the door of Manhattan Rainbow Spa on West 45th Street, police said. The victim, a 53-year-old Asian woman, answered the door, and the man allegedly showed her a shield and told her that he was a cop.
Robert Villaviciencio told a group of teens at Jones Beach he was an off-duty police officer and demanded a 14-year-old girl come with him because the group was smoking and drinking beer, prosecutors said.
