CANTON, Ohio — Canton police are investigating after a postal worker was robbed at gunpoint.

According to the police report, it happened on Cherry Avenue around 3 p.m. Saturday.

The victim said he was delivering mail when the suspect got out of a car came over to him with a gun.

He then forced him to empty his pockets and threatened to shoot him in the leg.

“I was scared. I have an eight-year-old son. I’m a mailman. I shouldn’t have to worry about someone coming up to me with a gun,” he told FOX 8’s Paul Kiska.

He said the suspect took $18 from his wallet and then did something surprising.

“He gave me my wallet back, so at least he was generous,” said the postal worker.
