SPARTANBURG -- Spartanburg County authorities said they think there is a connection among several cases of motorists being stopped by someone posing as a law enforcement officer.

Last week sheriff's deputies investigated a woman's complaint that she was sexually assaulted by a man who had a blue light in his sports utility vehicle and pulled her over.

There have been several other reports in the past week of people in Greenville and Spartanburg counties being pulled over by someone with flashing lights on their vehicle, but none of those people have reported assaults.
