BOTHELL, Wash. -- The U.S. Postal Service is offering a $50,000 reward after a man tried to rob a postal service carrier in Bothell.

The attempted robbery happened on Tuesday, Nov. 1, around 1:50 p.m near 169th Street SE and 3th Drive NE. The Postal Service said the man showed a handgun and unsuccessfully tried to steal items from the postal worker.

The suspect is described as white, in his 30s, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, 170 pounds, with a thin build and dark brown chin hair. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a zipper.

During the attempted robbery, the suspect's hand was smashed in the car door when the postal worker was getting away. The suspect likely sustained cuts and bruises on his right hand as a result.

The suspect left the scene in a late 1980s - early 1990s red Acura Integra. He was with two white females.

The U.S. Postal Service is offering a $50,000 reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest and prosecution of those involved.
