The NYPD is searching for the man who impersonated a police officer and assaulted a UPS driver in South Ozone Park on Jan. 11.

Police said the suspect approached the 41-year-old UPS driver near 130-40 118th St. just before 4 p.m. and identified himself as a police officer. The man claimed he needed to inspect the inside of the delivery truck.

When the driver refused, the suspect smashed him in the head with a flashlight before fleeing the scene in a white sedan, according to authorities. Nothing was stolen from the truck.

The victim declined medical attention despite suffered pain and bruising.

Police released surveillance video and a photo of the suspect on Jan. 30.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this male is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
