Police this week arrested a 31-year-old man who allegedly impersonated a police officer and sexually assaulted two women.
Police on Monday arrested Thomas Kim, of Herndon, and charged him with sexual assault, abduction, impersonating a law enforcement officer and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He is currently behind bars at the Fairfax County Detention Center.
Kim was arrested while he was allegedly committing a similar crime.
Kim is being held in connection with two sex assaults in Herndon. In the first incident, at about 3:45 p.m. on Oct. 11., a man approached the first victim in the 1200 Block of Magnolia Lane. He said he was a law enforcement official and sexually assaulted the victim. The suspect fled in a gray vehicle.
At about 7 p.m. the same day, a suspect again told a victim that he was a law enforcement official. He forced the victim into a gray car in the 400 Block of Elden Street. The suspect drove a short distance and then sexually assaulted the victim.
