(VINCENNES) - Vincennes Police arrested a suspect Thursday afternoon in a police officer impersonation investigation.

Officers arrested 33-year-old Kevin Johnson at Tecumseh-Harrison Elementary School where he apparently had gone to see his children in anticipation of his arrest.

Johnson is accused of passing himself off as a Vincennes University Police Intern Tuesday night at the Campus Habitat Apartments.

Johnson, who was in possession of a handgun and handcuffs, allegedly said he was investigating a noise complaint.

Before real police officers arrived, witnesses said he ran into one of the apartments and jumped out of a third floor window.

Johnson is being held in the Knox County Jail on 25-thousand dollars bond on preliminary charges of Impersonating a Police Officer; Criminal Confinement with a Deadly Weapon; Intimidation with a Weapon and carrying a Handgun with a License.

School officials say Tecumseh-Harrison Elementary School was placed on lockdown shortly after Johnson's arrival.

Suspicious school officials placed him in a waiting area where he did not have access to the school.

Police had Johnson under surveillance at the time and contacted school officials about the situation.

Upon seeing a police officer approached the school building, Johnson gave himself up without incident.

Johnson was not armed at the time.
