Police are asking anyone who may have been scammed by a suspect impersonating a police officer to come forward.

Mikhail Belik was arrested last month after the NYPD said he pretended to be an officer while allegedly patronizing escorts and masseuses.

Officials say he threatened to arrest them for operating without a license if they did not pay him off.

Belik is being charged with robbery, burglary and criminal impersonation of a police officer.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
