Incident Location: 1221 Clifton St E (District 2)
TPD Report # 12-215040

The postal employee locked his vehicle and was conducting mail deliveries in the neighborhood on foot. Two unknown black male suspects forced entry into the U.S. Postal Service vehicle (fully marked as postal truck) and stole two containers of mail (approximately 200-400 pieces). While fleeing the area the number one suspect confronted a witness and attempted to intimidate while she was on her cellular telephone calling 911. The suspects had parked the suspect vehicle approximately one block away from the victim vehicle and approached on foot. The witness observed the suspects enter the listed suspect vehicle. The U.S. Postal Inspectors responded to the scene and advised they would make notification to those residents that may have had incoming mail in the containers that were taken.
