Postal worker distressed about safety after being robbed of common mailbox key at gunpoint

Now, after yet another attack on a USPS mail carrier, CBS 2’s Sabrina Franza spoke exclusively with that victim about what needs to change to keep letter carriers – and your mail – safe.

“He says, ‘Give me everything – and I have the key in my left, my phone and pieces of mail in my right – and I just flip everything up,” the letter carrier said.

At 11:42 a.m. Saturday, the 34-year-old mail carrier – whom we have kept anonymous at his request – was delivering mail in the West Loop Saturday like he has done for four years. He was working in the 1300 block of West Van Buren Street.

“The way he got out, he didn’t give me the intention that he was going to rob,” the mail carrier said. “I thought he was just going to shoot, just right away.”
