U.S. Postal Inspectors and Cromwell Police are searching for a suspect after a United States Postal Service employee was robbed at a post office earlier this month.
Police responded to the Cromwell Post Office on Main Street on Friday, September 7, around 6:15 p.m. after getting a report of an armed robbery.
According to officials, a U.S. Postal Service Highway Contract Route (HCR) driver was exiting the rear of the vehicle when a man brandished a firearm and demanded postal property. The suspect was described as a man with a light complexion, who was approximately 5'9" with a Spanish accent. The suspect was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black face mask that covered the lower portion of his face. Investigators believe the suspect had a vehicle parked on the north side of an adjacent business.
No injuries were reported.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the U.S. Postal Inspection Service at (877) 876-2455 or the Cromwell Police Department at (860) 635-2256. All information will be kept confidential.
