Musiclover | Predatory approach

I was arrested for suspected shoplifting with a sibling. I was let go as I didn’t commit an offence. My car was locked in a town centre car park as it had closed.
A police officer said he would come to the car park and get my car released. Just before I got in my car he gave me a card with his number on it.
He said he would like to take me on a date and “see what happened after” and “you’re a very pretty lady”
I felt creeped out by his behaviour, and the way he looked at me.
