DETROIT (WXYZ) — A visibly distressed postal worker was helped by a neighbor Saturday after she was reportedly followed by several men in a red van while out making deliveries.
Ring doorbell video shows the mail carrier looking over her shoulder and shaking as she goes to a nearby front porch in the area of Schoolcraft and Stahelin. She was noticeably desperate for help.
The homeowner, Tania Jackson, was alerted to the carrier’s presence via Ring, which senses movement nearby. Jackson went to her front porch when she noticed the carrier from her smartphone.
“She was shaking, you could tell she was fearful,” Jackson said, who quickly opened the door for the worker.
