Postal worker held up at gunpoint while working on Syracuse’s North Side

Syracuse, N.Y. — A postal worker reported that he was held up at gunpoint Tuesday afternoon on the city’s North Side, police said.

The robbery was reported at about 2 p.m. in the 400 block of Graves Street, Syracuse police spokesman Sgt. Matthew Malinowski said.

The 26-year-old man said that while he was delivering mail for the United States Postal Service, he was approached by another man who demanded his property while displaying a handgun, Malinowski said.

The man with the gun took the postal worker’s wallet, rummaged through it and threw it on the ground, Malinowski said. The man did not take any money or property from the postal worker, he said.

No injuries were reported, Malinowski said.
Police ask anyone with information about the robbery to call the Syracuse Police Department at 315-442-5222.
