The victim said he was delivering mail when the suspect got out of a car came over to him with a gun.
He then forced him to empty his pockets and threatened to shoot him in the leg.
“I was scared. I have an eight-year-old son. I’m a mailman. I shouldn’t have to worry about someone coming up to me with a gun,” he told FOX 8’s Paul Kiska.
He said the suspect took $18 from his wallet and then did something surprising.
“He gave me my wallet back, so at least he was generous,” said the postal worker.
