DUNDALK, Md. — Baltimore County Police are calling a May 30 incident involving a U.S. Postal Service truck, a carjacking.

It happened around 4:07pm in Dundalk around Marsdale and Lynch Road.

The circumstances leading up to it are unclear.

A police spokeswoman tells WMAR-2 news the suspect was not armed and that the female victim got out of the USPS vehicle herself, without force.

Somehow though, police say she sustained minor injuries but refused medical attention.

The suspect was ultimately found inside the stolen car in the area of North Point Boulevard and Wise Avenue, and taken into custody.

No property appeared to be missing or taken.

A USPS official says they don't believe their worker was targeted.

"The US Postal Inspection Service is assisting Baltimore County Police Department with the investigation into this incident. The USPS does not appear to be the intended target of this crime and no USPS property or mail was missing or taken."

No other information was released.
