NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police say a man at first described as a police impersonator who ordered women to undress in their homes has turned out to be a rookie officer.

Police Superintendent Warren Riley said Darrius Clipps graduated from police academy last April. They say he admitted two of three home invasions and resigned.

Clipps was booked on counts including malfeasance in office and sexual battery.

Police were investigating three cases this week where a man dressed as an officer forced his way into a home, ordered women to undress and asked them about drugs.

Riley said other officers told investigators that a composite sketch of the subject resembled both Clipps and anther man.

One witness also gave police a badge number that matched Clipps’ badge.
