ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Prosecutors and police decided not to warn the public even though they knew someone impersonating a police officer was attacking people around Albany and Dougherty County.
The District Attorney says the suspect may have attacked ten people over the last several weeks.
District Attorney and GBI Investigators say overnight they received several calls from other victims after 27 year old Phillip Conner was arrested Wednesday for impersonating an officer.
District Attorney Greg Edwards said "Preliminarily we had 3 definite incidences, but I anticipate we will have from 7 to 10 total cases, and maybe more."
Today Investigators continued to talk with more victims, and prepare more charges of violence to be filed against Conner.
Edwards said "Mostly sexual assault allegations."
Edwards said some of the victims were prostitutes or street people, including one man. Investigators say Conner drove up to people in this blue car, pretending to be an undercover drug agent, and sexually assaulted some of them.
The attacks went on for several weeks across different areas of Dougherty County, but law enforcement never put out a public warning.
Edwards said "Certainly that is something. But you don't want to have a general panic until you have some identifying factors and that is what we needed to do before we made, we could make a move in this situation."
After an early Tuesday morning attack in which a woman reported being sexually assaulted at gunpoint, the SWAT team moved in and arrested Conner.
Edwards said "there is at least one allegation of some violence being used, and one of the things we wanted to try to deal with this situation before it escalated any further."
Now Investigators continue to ask victims of someone pretending to be a Police Officer to come forward,believing there are more victims.
Conner is in the Dougherty County Jail without bond.
If you know anything about someone impersonating a Police Officer or an undercover drug agent call the District Attorney's office at 431-3233 or the G-B-I at 777-2080.
