“Talqi” searches for two men posing as police officers carrying batons to enter a woman’s home.
In viral footage, the woman recorded the men fleeing her apartment complex in The Shaftesburys, Barking when she requested their IDs at 7pm on Tuesday.
The victim reported that they were both wearing rough uniforms including hats, belts and “batons” and said they were there to search the property.
She let them in before she suspected her and asked to see their identities, which they were unable to show.
Two men in forensic gloves talk to fake walkie-talkies in a desperate attempt to make the woman believe they are real police officers demanding backup.
One of the fake officers said the woman “sells drugs, sells cannabis” as he escapes stairs after being chased off an elevator.
The shy pair try to hide their faces under fake police hats.
The resident accused them of trying to steal her phone when she kicked them off the tower in the direction of Abbey Road.
Real police officers attended and conducted a search in the area but the location of the couple has not been determined.
The Met said nothing was believed to have been stolen from the address and there were no reports of any physical injuries.
The police have issued advice to anyone concerned about police health.
Cabinet ministers and Scotland Yard have been accused of a silent response to violence against women and girls after a series of suggestions about what action the public should take if they fear an officer is not behaving legitimately.
Other advice – including yelling at a passerby, running into a house, knocking on the door or calling 999 – has also been met with heavy criticism.
The force also said that people stopped by the officer can ask to listen or speak to the radio operator and must ask questions about the whereabouts of their colleagues; Where did they come from, why are they there and why exactly do they stop or talk to them.
She vowed not to deploy plainclothes officers alone, after the Old Bailey overheard on computer Wayne Cousins, who was off duty and not in uniform, used lockdown rules and showed his order card to mistakenly arrest Mrs. Everard during the kidnapping.
Police would like to speak to the two men in the photo and ask anyone with information that can help contact 101 Reference CAD 6640/12 Oct.
