Baltimore police said yesterday they arrested a state correctional officer and were seeking two other men in connection with the abduction and robbery of a South Baltimore man who told authorities the trio had impersonated city police officers.
Col. Fred H. Bealefeld III, chief of detectives, said a 19-year-old man and two others were stopped and searched by the men in the city's Westport neighborhood Friday evening. Displaying silver badges, police said, the men handcuffed and forced the teenager into a silver 2001 Hyundai, drove near M&T Bank Stadium and stole $700 from him. The other two men were set free.
