Shaker Heights Police are looking for a man who robbed an interoffice mail courier at gunpoint.
Just before 5 p.m. on Oct. 3, the suspect approached an interoffice mail courier who was getting out of his car in the parking lot of Huntington Bank at 20601 Fairmount Blvd.
The man showed the courier a gun and demanded that he hand over the bag in his hand.

The suspect fled on foot with his loot.
The suspect is described as a 5-foot-10-inch, 180-pound black male in his mid-30s.
