Stockertown man accused of impersonating officer

Kenneth Olswfski faces several charges.

WILLIAMS TWP., Pa. - A Northampton County man is facing charges after police said he impersonated an officer and robbed two men.

The incident happened around 4:15 p.m. Sunday on Morgan Hill Road in Williams Township.

The victims were waiting for a tow truck after a separate accident when 29-year-old Kenneth Wendel Olswfski of Stockertown allegedly stopped and told them he was a vice officer.

Olswfski frisked the two 20-year-old Bethlehem men and took money from their wallets, police said.

Olswfski then left the area in his 1994 Honda Accord, but was found a short time later driving the same car, police said.

He was arrested and charged with robbery, theft and impersonating a public servant.

He was arraigned, and bail was set at $10,000 but was revoked on Monday for a probation violation, according to officials.

Any agency with similar incidents is asked to call state police at Belfast at 610-759-6106.
