Police in Northeast Philadelphia are looking for a man who they say impersonated a postal worker, then forced his way into a woman's Bustleton home at gunpoint Tuesday morning and robbed her.
The man, in full postal uniform, knocked on the door of the woman's home on Nester Place at 9:45 a.m. and asked her to sign for a letter, Seventh District Capt. Joseph Zaffino said. When she opened her screen door, the man displayed a gun, forced her into a bedroom, and demanded her valuables, Zaffino said. The gunman robbed the woman, who police said is about 70, of cash and jewelry.
