PENSACOLA, Fla. — A man posing as a sheriff's deputy has surfaced again in the Florida Panhandle, and this time is suspected in a sexual assault.
The Escambia County Sheriff's Office said a woman was sexually assaulted Tuesday night near Interstate 110 in north Florida.
It was the third time in two weeks that a man has impersonated an officer in Escambia County.
On Jan. 20, a man impersonating an officer pulled over a 17-year-old girl, who escaped unharmed. Authorities believe that case is linked to Tuesday's incident.
On Saturday, a University of West Florida student told university police that a man pulled up behind her car and turned on flashing blue lights. It is unclear if that case is connected with the others.
