The man pushed her back in her vehicle and held her at knifepoint. He then robbed her and insisted they drive to an ATM so he could empty her bank account. When the carjacker stopped at a red light, the victim was able to escape.Postmaster Joe Singh has brought in counselors for his employees who are still extremely shaken up by the incident. He?s also beefed up security, installing additional lights in the parking lot and moving employee parking spaces closer to the loading dock and entrance.
