A frightening ordeal for 3 teenagers after a car that looked like a police cruiser flashed its headlights and pulled them over.
The teenagers stopped at the Scott County Park, off US 25, but the people inside the white car were not police officers, instead, they were armed with a baseball bat and demanded money.
The victims say they pulled off 25 as soon as they could and the first turn-off was here at the Scott County Park, which was dark and vacant.
Police say the driver of that white car blocked the driveway to the park, so the teens couldn't leave and 4 suspects got out. Investigators say they began yelling for the victims to get out of the car saying we're going to shoot you. Police say the victims noticed one of the foursome was armed with a bat.
The victims gave up their wallets, cell phones and shoes before the suspects took off. While the victims say they were never sure whether or not the car behind them was actually an officer, police say anyone on patrol would have used lights or sirens. If you want to make sure you're being tailed by a officer, police say to hit your emergency hazards and let the officer know you see them, continue on slowly to a lot that is populated and well lit.
Officers also say you can call an emergency dispatcher and they can get an officer heading your way, if there is ever any confusion.
Police say they are tracking leads in this case, saying they know the white car used to have lettering on the side saying "detention facility.""
If you know anything about this white Crown Victoria, you are asked to call police.
