Fake police officers in Geuzenveld

. ()

An elderly couple was robbed in their home Wednesday morning on the Cornelis Outshoorn street by a fake police officer and his accomplice.

Four similar reports came in, this week alone, all in the Geuzenveld quarters, reports a police spokesperson.

The fake officers ID's himself with false documentation, and then pretends to be conducting an investigation in the home. While he talks to the residents, a second person enters the house and robs them.

Possibly the same perpetrators are involved in these incidents. The police do not yet have a description of the suspects. Police warn residents to be alert. Witnesses are urged to contact the police immediately.
