Cop impersonator arrested on suspected sexual assault

An East Bay man pretending to be a San Francisco police officer was arrested for sexually assaulting a woman on Christmas Day, police said Thursday.

Officers went to Polk and Geary streets on Dec. 25 at about noon regarding an assault in which the suspect told the victim he was a “cop,” police said. The victim called police and gave the license plate of a 1993 Isuzu Rodeo.

Concord police received the information and made the arrest while the suspect was driving near his home.

Munkei Keton, 37, of Concord, was taken into custody on suspicion of sexual assault charges, assault, false imprisonment, misrepresenting oneself as a police officer. The victim was treated for her injuries and released.

Police are seeking others who may have been victims of this suspect.  Keton is described as an African-American, 5’7”, 195 lbs., balding, and driving the vehicle as described above.  Additional victims of this suspect are urged to contact the Sexual Assault Detail, 415- 553-1361.

Police urge anyone who is the victim of a sexual assault to report the incident immediately to the police or to the Rape Treatment Center at San Francisco General Hospital.
