The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is seeking information about two suspects who robbed a driver and attempted to hijack a delivery truck.

On Aug. 24, at approximately 4 a.m., suspects attempted to hijack a truck at the U.S. Post Office at 16500 Joy Road in Detroit.

While the hijacking was unsuccessful, the driver was robbed at gunpoint of the truck keys and personal property.

The first suspect is described by USPIS as a black man in his 20s armed with a black revolver, with closely braided hair, "buck teeth" and standing at about 5 feet 8 inches tall, wearing a black hat, hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and dark shoes. His sclera, or white part of the eye, was described as "yellowed."

The second suspect's description is unknown but was driving a 2000 to 2005 gray or silver Honda Civic.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact USPIS at 1-877-876-2455 and state "Representative" at the voice prompt.
