Kentucky man arrested for posing as police officer, attempting to rape woman
Authorities in Kentucky have arrested a man who they say posed as a police officer, pulled a woman over on a rural road and attempted to rape her.
The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office charged 46-year-old Walter Earl Darling with attempted rape, impersonating a peace officer and related charges Monday.
A sheriff's office statement says Darling was pretending to be an officer when he pulled up behind the victim's car on a highway near London in September. The statement says he turned flashing lights on, led the woman to a field and jumped into her car with a large hunting knife.
