Three males have been accused of impersonating police officers to pull over a woman on the A41 using red and blue flashing lights on their Jaguar car.

A 19-year-old man from Oxford and two 17-year-old boys from Bicester have been released under investigation after being arrested on suspicion of impersonating police constables.

Using red and blue lights, similar to those on police cars, the trio is accused of pulling over a female member of the public.

The incident happened between 2.30pm and 2.40pm on Saturday, October 2. The flashing lights caused the woman to pull over into a bus stop just before junction 9 of the M40 on the A41.

The Jaguar then parked behind the vehicle before speeding away from the scene. The suspicious vehicle had a partial registration of 'WR59' and is described as a Grey Jaguar XF Luxury with a distinctive large black spoiler on the back.

The trio were arrested and released under investigation.

Investigating officer PC Faik Muhtaroglu, based at Bicester police station, said: “Impersonating a police officer is an offence that we will not tolerate, and we have made three arrests in connection with this incident.

“I am appealing to members of the public who may have been driving on the A41 between Bicester and the M40 last Saturday to please check dash-cam footage and contact us if it has captured anything that may assist this investigation."

Witnesses are urged to call police on 101 quoting reference number 43210443996.
