Rochester, NY, Letter Carrier Cassandra Wilkinson

Letter Carrier Cassandra Wilkinson was delivering mail recently in a Rochester, NY, neighborhood when a customer ran into the street, screaming for help.

Wilkinson secured the mail in her vehicle and rushed over to assist the woman, who led her to a residence where a 25-year-old man had just been stabbed.

Wilkinson rendered first aid — applying pressure to his wounds and trying to keep him calm and alert until emergency responders arrived.

The alleged assailant, who fled the scene, was arrested the following day.

The victim survived the attack.
