​A USPS letter carrier was robbed this week in Randolph, Massachusetts, and now the U.S. Postal Inspection Service is offering a reward of up to $25,000 that leads to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible.

According to the USPIS, the robbery occurred just before 2 p.m. Wednesday on Canton Street. Authorities didn't release any details on what was taken.

Officials released photos on Thursday of the suspect, who is described as a man approximately 5'7". He was wearing a black puffy jacket, black hooded sweatshirt, dark pants, and white sneakers.​ The pictures appear to show the man running down a residential street.

Not including this latest case, prosecutors say there have been at least 12 assaults against USPS letter carriers in the Greater Boston area since July 2022. They say in about half of those robberies, the suspects had guns, knives, or in some cases, both.

Authorities did not say Thursday if the suspect in Randolph was carrying a weapon, but people were advised to take no action to apprehend the person.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the USPIS at 1-877-876-2455, say "law enforcement" and reference case No. 3989020. Information will be kept strictly confidential, the agency said.​
