Investigators in the District are trying to determine who robbed a postal worker and locked him in his truck last evening near a busy intersection along the U Street NW corridor.
The mail carrier was leaving the Post Office located near the busy intersection of 14th and T Streets Northwest during rush hour. That's when a masked gunman approached him and demanded his cash, according to the U.S. Postal Police. The man then stuffed the money into a black backpack, locked the postal worker in the rear of the truck, and then took off.
The employee was able to call for help from his cell phone. Police arrived less than a half hour later and blocked off the street to investigate. Authorities also went to nearby businesses in search of witnesses.
This is the latest in a string of robberies involving postal workers in the D.C. area, according to officials.
