Las Vegas police are looking for an armed suspect who stole a U.S. Postal Service box truck Saturday morning in the central valley.

At about 11:55 a.m., police said, a man approached a postal service employee on the 3800 block of Algonquin Drive, near East Flamingo Road and South Eastern Avenue, and had asked him for a ride. When the employee refused, the suspect forced him out of the USPS vehicle before driving away, according to Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Trish Cervantes.

The truck was found nearly two hours later on the 2100 block of East Desert Inn Road, but Cervantes said that the wanted man was still at large as of Saturday afternoon.

Police said the suspect did not brandish the firearm when he forced the employee out of his truck, and no injuries were reported.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
