MARION, Iowa (AP) - Authorities in Linn County are looking for a man they say posed as a law enforcement officer and robbed a woman.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office says the incident Thursday night involved a driver on Highway 13 near Marion.

A woman says she was stopped by an unmarked vehicle that had flashing red and blue lights. She told authorities a man with a black ski mask on approached her.

The woman says the man displayed a handgun and demanded money. She says he took her money and fled, and she sped away from the scene.
