PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A man posing as a sheriff's deputy has
surfaced again in the Florida Panhandle, and this time is suspected
in a sexual assault.

The Escambia County Sheriff's Office said a woman was sexually
assaulted Tuesday night near Interstate 110 in north Florida.

It was the third time in two weeks that a man has impersonated
an officer in Escambia County.

On Jan. 20, a man impersonating an officer pulled over a
17-year-old girl, who escaped unharmed. Authorities believe that
case is linked to Tuesday's incident.

On Saturday, a University of West Florida student told university police that a man pulled up behind her car and turned on flashing blue lights. It is unclear if that case is connected with the others.
