A mailman was held up at gunpoint while on the job in the 2400 block of North 62nd Street on Saturday.
According to the Wauwatosa police report:
The postal carrier saw two men dressed all in black pass him. A few moments later, he heard a voice behind him say, "Give me all your money." He turned around and saw a man pointing a semiautomatic handgun in his face. The robber again demanded money, but the postman told him he didn't have any.
The robber ran across the street, where a second man was watching and waiting.
