COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — A 19-year-old man has been charged with conspiracy and other federal crimes for allegedly robbing two U.S. Postal Service workers in central Ohio.

Anthony J. Williams, of Columbus, was arrested in Pittsburgh Monday on charges related to two aggravated robberies in 2022, one in Columbus and another in Canal Winchester. He will be arraigned in Pittsburgh on Tuesday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Ohio said in a news release.

Williams is accused of robbing two postal carriers of their service keys in November and December 2022. In November, he allegedly robbed a postal worker at gunpoint on Michigan Avenue in Columbus. Then on Christmas Eve that year on Kodiak Drive in Canal Winchester, the federal prosecutor said he punched a postal worker in the face and threatened to kill him if he didn’t hand over his postal service key
