Youth arrested for impersonating police

SEVEN youth who allegedly pulled over an off-duty policewoman in Traralgon last Friday while impersonating police have been arrested and interviewed.

According to Police Media, the off-duty policewoman was traveling along the Princes Freeway about 3.10am on Friday when a car approached her vehicle from behind with red and blue lights flashing.

She pulled over but became suspicious of the car’s occupants and attempted to drive off when a second vehicle pulled in front of her car, blocking her in.

The policewoman then identified herself as a member of Victoria Police and both vehicles drove away.

Traralgon Police, who investigated the incident, arrested seven local youth aged between 16 and 18 years, who have been released pending summons.
