Police released video Friday that they hope will help find them.


Investigators said the attack happened earlier this week at an apartment complex on Walden Circle, near Vineland Road.

The Postal Inspector is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

That attack happened as the mail carrier was putting mail into the mailboxes at the Oak Grove Apartments.

A nearby Ring doorbell captured video of the two people investigators are looking for walking down the sidewalk Monday afternoon.

Then seconds later, police said a mailman was attacked and robbed as he was just performing his regular route.

According to Orlando police, the two men, described as in their 20s, hit the victim in the head, possibly with a handgun, then robbed him and then fled the scene.

It’s not known what the men got away with.

A witness called 911 after he saw the mail carrier crouched down near the mailboxes.

He told dispatchers the postal worker had what appeared to be a severe head injury from the attack.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 321-235-5300, or contact the U.S. Postal Inspection Service at 1-877-876-2455 and say “law enforcement.”
