NORMAN, Okla. – Authorities are investigating a police impersonator in Norman.

Norman police say they received a call that a male subject had been held against his will inside of a liquor store.

Officials say the under aged victim had been caught attempting to purchase alcohol from the liquor store.

The victim’s parents received a telephone call from a liquor store employee who claimed to be Sgt. Williams with the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office.

The man told the victim’s parents that if they did not bring $200 to the liquor store, the victim would be taken to jail.

Once the victim’s parents arrived, and the $200 was given to the suspect, the victim was released to his parents.

The suspect presented himself as a police officer to both the victim and his parents.  He allegedly held the victim for approximately two hours.

Police have identified the suspect and believe there may be additional victims who have not come forward.

If you are a victim or have information regarding this crime, please contact the Norman Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division at (405)366-5235.
