DENVER (KDVR) — Federal authorities are investigating after a mail carrier was reportedly robbed at gunpoint Wednesday night in Denver.
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service, which handles law enforcement for the U.S. Postal Service, says it happened Wednesday around 6:30 p.m. on the 3200 block of Milwaukee Street.
According to a USPIS spokesperson, two black male suspects allegedly approached the letter carrier and pulled out a gun, taking some things before running away.
No mail or packages were stolen, but unspecified U.S. Postal Service property was reportedly stolen. The letter carrier was not injured, and mail delivery was not impacted.
According to the USPIS, an armed robbery of a postal employee is a federal crime punishable by up to 25 years in prison.
“They’re good people,” neighbor Soth Orn said. “They don’t deserve that stuff. They have kids and families just like us.”
Orn said Denver Police went door to door in the area looking for information. He’s hoping they can track down whoever’s responsible.
“The neighborhood has been quiet and peaceful and the neighbors are friendly,” he said. “I don’t really see people around here doing that type of stuff, so I’m going to assume it’s someone from another area that came here and did that.”
USPS is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
Anyone with information is asked to call the U.S. Postal Inspection Service at 1-877-876-2455, or submit an anonymous tip through Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP.

BERGEN, Norway (StudyFinds.org) — Switching to a healthier diet of nuts, beans, and whole grains as a young adult can help you live a decade longer, a new study on longevity reveals. A team from the University of Bergen says that healthy diet changes actually benefit people of all ages, but the earlier someone moves away from red and processed meat, the better it is in the long run.
Researcher Lars Fadnes says dietary risk factors contribute to 11 deaths and an additional 255 million years of life disrupted by disability every single year. In the new study, researchers used data from the Global Burden of Diseases study to create a model estimating the benefits to life expectancy from eating certain foods. The team has made this tool — the Food4HealthyLife calculator — publicly available online.
