CLEVELAND — Cleveland police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in an aggravated robbery.

On Aug. 5, a mail carrier was delivering mail in the 6600 block of Fir Avenue when he walked past a man who then put a gun to the mail carrier’s back and said, “Don’t turn around or I’ll shoot you. Give me your wallet,” according to police.

The man took the mail carrier’s wallet before fleeing, police said.

The man used a credit card that was in the mail carrier’s wallet at a Footlocker and Rite Aid.

Anyone who can identify the man in the photo is asked to call police at 216-623-5218.
