PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Philadelphia police say an armed robber targeted two mail carriers in broad daylight just minutes apart.
The first robbery occurred around 2:45 p.m. Wednesday on the 6400 block of North 12th Street in East Oak Lane.
Police say the 18-year-old postal worker was on her route delivering mail when she was approached by a man with a gun.
He took the mail and mail keys and drove off in a black Chevy Impala.
But police say he wasn’t done.
Just five minutes later, police say the suspect drove just a few blocks away in the Impala to the 6500 block of 13th Street and did the same thing.
He approached another female postal worker with a gun and took the mail and keys.
