MINNEAPOLIS — U.S. postal officials are offering a reward of up to $50,000 in the case of a mail carrier who was robbed at gunpoint in Minneapolis Tuesday afternoon. 

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) says the incident happened around 4:15 p.m. on the 3000 block of N. 4th Street. A release sent out by the USPIS included a surveillance image of a suspect who appears to be holding a handgun and pointing it at someone off-camera. 

There is another picture of a vehicle the USPIS says is one used by the suspects in the crime, described as a light-colored four-door sedan. 

Postal officials warn that action should not be taken by any individual to apprehend the suspects. Instead, they urge anyone with information to call the USPIS at 1-877-876-2455, and reference case number 3421717.
