Terrance Jacobus, 48, and Kelli Rowan, 28, were arrested Wednesday after they were pulled over by officers from the Third District, and now face charges of impersonating a public servant, robbery, criminal conspiracy, theft, and related crimes.

Police said Jacobus and Rowan targeted two people early on Nov. 29. About 4:40 a.m., police said, a 23-year-old woman walking home was approached by the pair, who were driving a silver Nissan, near Fourth and Jackson Streets.

Jacobus, police said, showed the woman a badge, told her he was a police officer, and ordered her to “come here.” He threatened to arrest her if she did not comply.
