Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man pretending to be a member of law enforcement.

Early Tuesday morning a driver reported getting pulled over on Route 84 near Route 30 outside Fulton by an unmarked car with red and blue interior lights.

A man approached the car and shined a flashlight into the driver's eyes.  The driver asked the suspect to produce a badge and instead he went back to his car and took off.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Whiteside County Sheriff's Office at 815-772-4044 or Crime Stoppers at 815-625-7867.
