Police are now hoping a composite sketch will help them find them man who posed as a cop and tried to abduct a Salt Lake girl.

Salt Lake police think the girl's story is legitimate and that the suspect is potentially dangerous.

"Anytime somebody is identifying themselves as a police officer with the intent of getting young children, young girls, into their car, it makes it a very high priority to us," said Detective Roger Williams, with the Salt Lake Police Department.

Williams says police have now released a composite sketch of the man they say posed as a cop to lure a girl into a car Sunday night near 1900 South and 300 West.

The girl was assaulted before she was able to escape.
