Cops are on a manhunt for a con artist in Toronto who they say has been posing as an undercover cop and demanding sex from prostitutes in exchange for their freedom.

The phony policeman has been picking up sex workers in a car, claiming to be an officer and then forcing them to perform sexual acts since Nov. 18, 2011, according to a press release.

Most recently, on Jan. 27, the impostor picked up a prostitute and drove away with her before making his perverted move -- but she wasn't having it.

"The man told the woman he was a police officer and demanded a sexual act from the woman," according to the press release. "The woman managed to escape from the car and call police."

Toronto's National Post reported that the man is described as 5 feet 9 inches tall, with a medium build, brown eyes and short dark hair.

Cops believe that the man may have other victims.
