Postal worker robbed in Va.
A postal delivery man was robbed at gunpoint in Virginia's hunt country Monday and locked inside the rear of his truck for about 15 minutes before a passerby heard him yelling and freed him, Loudoun County sheriff's officials said.
The 27-year-old contract worker arrived at the Middleburg Post Office on West Washington Street about 6 p.m. Monday and was unloading his truck when he was approached by a masked man with a gun, authorities said.
The gunman was accompanied by another man, police said.
Authorities said the men took the victim's cell phone and locked him inside the rear of the truck. The victim said postal bags and other items were stolen.
The armed suspect is described as black, 5-foot-10 inches tall with a medium build. He was wearing a mask and hood. The second suspect is described as a white, about 5-foot-10 to 6-foot tall with a thin build.
Loudoun County Sheriff's investigators are working the case along with the Middleburg Police Department and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Loudoun County Sheriff's investigator M. Bush at 703-777-0475 or the 24-hour U.S. Postal Inspection Service Hotline at 1-877-876-2455.
