QUEENS — The NYPD has arrested a Bayside man they claim forced a victim to perform a sex act by impersonating a police officer.

On Oct. 13, 27-year-old Julio Olivares, of Bell Boulevard, was arrested by members of the Internal Affairs Bureau’s Police Impersonation Unit on criminal sex act and criminal impersonation of a police officer charges, cops said.

Police allege that on June 16, 2010, Olivares approached his male victim in a gray SUV and displayed a gold, police-type shield and instructed the victim to enter his vehicle.

Olivares allegedly told his victim that he looked like one of his confidential informants and proceeded to drive to a nearby parking garage within the confines of the 114th Precinct, where he forced the victim to perform a sex act on him, police said.

The 114th Precinct covers Astoria, Long Island City, Woodside and Jackson Heights.
