FLOYD, N.Y. -- The Oneida County Sheriff's Office says a woman was pulled over by a vehicle that had red and blue lights in the grill of the car, and are offering some safety tips to the public.
She alleged that two men were involved and identified themselves as police.
The incident happened on East Floyd Road in the town of Floyd on Monday.
Sheriff's deputies say that if someone feels unsafe when being pulled over by an unmarked car, they should always ask for identification.
"If you're pulled over by an unmarked police car, and an individual comes up to you, he should be able to present to you his identification, because most officers will be more than happy to provide you with identification, especially if they pull you over on a dark road,” said Joe Lisi, the undersheriff.
This is the only incident of this sort that has been reported to the sheriff's office and the investigation remains underway.
If the suspects are caught they are looking at charges of criminal impersonation.
