WOODLAND HILLS—Four men, described by police as two African-American men and two Latino men, are wanted for allegedly commandeering a USPS worker's truck at gunpoint.

 

The incident occurred around 2:30 pm on Monday, June 24 on Dumont Street. The hijacked truck was later found abandoned on Natoma Avenue. Police said mail was missing from within the truck. The USPS worker was not physically harmed.

 

Though the motive is still unclear, US Postal officials state that the alleged thieves could have desired the personal information present within the mail.

 

The Topanga Community police station, which services Canoga Park, Winnetka, West Hills, and Woodlands Hills,  has not released any further details on the case.
