Man arrested for impersonating an officer and kidnapping, police say

Tulsa police announced they have arrested a man for impersonating a Tulsa police officer and kidnapping a woman.

On Feb. 28, 2022, the Tulsa Police Department received an 911 phone call from a woman stating she had been threatened with arrest by a Tulsa Police officer if she did not perform sexual favors for him. The victim also told Tulsa police she met this man online.

The man came to her hotel room and allegedly handcuffed her and told her she was under arrest, then requested sexual favors. The suspect told her he was an undercover police officer and his badge was “in the car,” but he reportedly appeared to have a firearm concealed on his hip.

The victim was able to call 911 and the suspect fled the scene.

The victim was able to obtain the suspects license plate number as he fled the scene. Officers from the Special Investigations Division Human Trafficking and Vice Unit were able to identify the suspect as Trent Bain.

Tulsa police emphasized that Bain was in no way employed by or associated with the Tulsa Police Department or any other law enforcement agencies.

Officers served a search warrant at Bain’s home in Jenks. Officers located a silver “concealed carry” badge purchased from an Army Surplus store on Bain’s person as well as a firearm in his home.

Bain was arrested for kidnapping and impersonating a police officer.

During an interview with officers, Bain stated he had a similar encounter with a separate woman he had met online on the same day. Officers have reason to beleive there could possibly be other victims.

Victims are encouraged to contact Human Trafficking and Vice Unit if they have been contacted by Bain at 918-586-6333.
