Three suspects are being sought after the robbery of a USPS worker on Sept. 29.

The United States Postal Inspection Service said they were searching for three men who robbed a letter carrier in the area of 3125 N. Palmer Street on Sept. 29.

The USPIS said the letter carrier was delivering mail when he was approached by two of the three suspects. The suspects implied that they would harm the letter carrier if he did not provide the items he had.

The third suspect was seen with the other two suspects before the robbery and was in the vicinity when the robbery occurred.

A $20,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.

Suspect 1 is described as a boy in his early teens, approximately 5' to 5'2" tall, wearing light-colored blue jeans and a dark-colored long sleeve shirt. Suspect 2 is described as a boy in his mid to late teens, 5'10" to 6' tall, wearing dark jeans and a dark hoodie. Suspect 3 is described 5'6" to 5'10" tall, wearing dark shoes and a dark-colored long-sleeve shirt.

The armed robbery of a postal employee is punishable by up to 25 years in prison.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the US Postal Inspection Service at 1-877-876-2455.
