USPS truck stolen at gunpoint

Rochester, N.Y. - A 59-year-old United States Postal Service driver was held at gunpoint Saturday afternoon and forced to hand over his delivery truck.

According to the Rochester Police Department, officers responded to 693 Ridgeway Avenue for a possible robbery shortly before noon.

Police said the stolen vehicle was located a couple of blocks away from the incident. It is unknown at this time if any mail was stolen.

The investigation is ongoing.
