AKRON, OH (WOIO) - Officers arrested 27-year-old Sidinei M. Saba for impersonating a cop on New Year's Day.

Around 3AM, Saba offered two females a ride home from a nightclub on West Exchange Street. Once inside of the car, the females reported that Saba identified himself as a police officer and refused to let them out of his car.

One female jumped out of his car on Route 8 and flagged down a cruiser. Officers then stopped Saba's vehicle at Interstate 77 and Route 224 where he was arrested.

Both victims were not injured. Saba was charged with Abduction, Aggravated Menacing, and Impersonating a Police Officer. He was booked into the Summit County Jail.
