A Florida man followed a car and pulled it over prentending to be a cop, then proceeded to rape one of the people he pulled over, officials said.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, 35-year-old Justin Evans was arrested on Aug. 10 for following a car with three women away from a convenience store and proceeding to pull them over as if he was a police officer.
The victim then pulled her car over into a nearby apartment complex where Evans ordered the women out of the vehicle and to put their hands on the hood of the car as he searched them for narcotics, according to sheriff's deputies.
According to the police report, Evans told one of the women that she was under arrest, and he tied her hands behind her back with a zip-tie and placed her in his car.
Evans then allegedly drove the 27-year-old victim to another nearby apartment complex, where he sexually assaulted her, according to the sheriff's office.
After Evans allegedly raped the female victim, he drove her back to where he pulled her over. That is when the victim reported the incident to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Evans was found the next day around 3:30 p.m. Evans realized he was being followed by the police, so he ditched his car and ran away on foot into the nearby woods.
He was soon after caught and arrested by Hillsborough County deputies.
Evans is currently being held in the Pasco County Jail. He is facing six charges, including impersonating a public officer, sexual battery on a victim over 18, grand theft third degree, kidnapping and two counts of false imprisonment.
