HARRIS COUNTY -- A man is behind bars and accused of pretending to be a Houston police officer so he could sexually assault a teenage girl.

Investigators say Lacorey Harris, 30, stopped a 15-year-old girl in the 9500 block of Plainfield in southwest Houston on March 8 and told her to get in his car.

Harris allegedly forced the girl to have sex with him saying she had a warrant in Kansas and he would arrest her if she didn't do what he said.

Authorities say Harris then took the girl to Popeye s.

Investigators say they were able to track Harris down because he bought food at the Popeye s with his debit card.
