A man in an unmarked police car allegedly pulled a woman over in Palmdale Saturday night and began to grope her when he was frisking her. "The victim said she fought with the man and was able to break free, run back to her car and drive away," CBS2 reported. "Authorities are looking for a man in his 30s, about 5 feet 10 inches and 185 pounds who was driving a dark colored Ford, possibly a Crown Victoria, with spotlights and a forward flashing blue light."
