A bogus cop is being sought by Bexley police.

The man identified himself as an officer to gain entrance to a residential property in Welling on May 28 but he did not display a warrant card.

The suspect said he was in pursuit of someone and needed to get to the rear of the property.

He produced what appeared to be a handgun and after a struggle, fled from the property, last seen heading in the direction of Bellegrove Road.

The man is described as slim to medium build and 6ft 2in tall.

He was wearing a white shirt over a black stab vest with a police logo over the breast. He had a London accent and a floppy hairstyle.
