CHICAGO — The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is offering another $150,000 reward as they investigate another robbery in Chicago.

The service released a short video clip of the robbery, which occurred at 5050 South Evans around 1:20 p.m. on June 28. In the video, the mail carrier is confronted by a woman wearing a pink sweatsuit and a pink shower cap.

“Give me that f*****g mail,” the woman states, lifting her jacket to display or imply that she has a weapon. She fled toward 51st Street after the robbery, according to the USPIS. Watch:

According to the agency, the suspect has large false eyelashes, stands 5’6″ or 5’7″ tall, and is between 20 and 25 years old.

The agency’s reward of up to $150,000 is available for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the woman. Tips can be shared with investigators by calling 877-876-2455 and referring to case #4334247. The USPIS assures confidentiality.
