Three men have been accused of posing as police officers to arrest a woman on the A41 by using flashing red and blue lights on their Jaguar car.
A 19-year-old man from Oxford and two 17-year-old boys from Bicester have been released under investigation after being arrested on suspicion of identity theft of police officers.
Using red and blue lights, similar to those in police cars, the trio are accused of arresting a woman in the public.
The incident occurred between 2:30 p.m. and 2:40 p.m. on Saturday, October 2. The flashing lights forced the woman to stop at a bus stop just before junction 9 of the M40 onto the A41.
The Jaguar then parked behind the vehicle before quickly pulling away from the scene. The suspect vehicle had a partial “WR59” registration and is described as a gray Jaguar XF Luxury with a distinctive large black spoiler at the rear.
The trio were arrested and released under investigation.
PC investigator Faik Muhtaroglu, based at Bicester Police Station, said: “Impersonating a police officer is an offense we will not tolerate, and we have made three arrests in connection with this incident.
“I am calling on members of the public who may have driven on the A41 between Bicester and the M40 last Saturday to please check the dash cam footage and contact us if they have captured anything that could help this investigation. ”
Witnesses are asked to call the police on 101, citing reference number 43210443996.
