Mich. postal worker robbed of Christmas packages at gunpoint

YPSILANTI TWP., Mich. – Police say robbers stole Christmas packages at gunpoint from a postal worker while he was making deliveries Tuesday evening in Ypsilanti Township, according to CBS Detroit.

The postal worker reportedly told police he was walking back to his truck when a gunman forced him to the ground and took his keys to open the rear door.

Another man then joined the alleged gunman and the two stole several packages before fleeing on foot, according to the station.

Police reportedly said they are not sure how many packages were stolen or what their contents were.

A $10,000 reward was by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.

The alleged gunman is described as a black male, 6’ tall with thin to medium build. He was wearing a blue and gold jacket. A description of the second suspect was not provided.

Those with information in connection with the case are urged to contact authorities.
