Columbus postal worker robbed at gunpoint on north side


COLUMBUS -- A United States Postal Service worker was held-up and robbed at gunpoint on the city's north side Monday night.

According to Columbus Police, just before 8 p.m., a mailman was stopped in the 1500 block of Northridge Road by two males in a car asking for directions.

The mailman said as he approached the older mid-sized, dark-colored car with loud exhaust, the occupants exited the car and pointed a gun at him, demanding everything he had.

The suspects ordered the mailman to the ground and took his wallet, got back in the car and fled westbound toward Homestead Drive.

Both suspects were believed to be black males in their early 20s, the passenger about 6-foot-2-inches tall with a thin build wearing a black hoodie and black athletic pants.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Paul in the robbery unit at
