A longtime east Harris County mail carrier was robbed at gunpoint while delivering mail on Monday afternoon, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service confirmed on Wednesday.

The agency said postal property was stolen but the carrier, who neighbors say is named Will, was unharmed during the incident in the 100 block of Moonridge Drive.

Surveillance videos captured a dark-colored sedan pull up on Long Shadow Drive and a man in a hoodie got out of the car, walking down the street toward Moonridge Drive.

Another video shows the man casually walking along the street, before charging at the mail carrier with a gun drawn.

He’s seen taking something from the mail carrier’s right hand, which neighbors said was a master key – a universal key that can access many mailboxes in many neighborhoods.

“I really felt bad for him. I know he was shook up. I was shook up, and I wasn’t there,” said Shellee Spiller, who lives near where the armed robbery happened.

Details on the incident were still limited on Wednesday afternoon.

“Protecting the Postal Service is the core mission of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. Robbery investigations receive the highest level of response and attention. Postal Inspectors are working with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office to identify and arrest the individual(s) involved,” a spokesperson for the U.S. Postal Inspection Service wrote in a statement to KPRC 2.
