Fresno Police are investigating an incident involving a postal worker that led to a short standoff on Saturday.

Police say a supervisor called to report some concerns about her employee. The woman said she spotted some ammunition in his car and tried to stop him from getting in the vehicle. She eventually got in the car with him and ended up in this neighborhood. The mailman went into a house, while she stayed in the car and called for help.

"What we're investigating is a possible kidnapping. It's too early to tell what's going to be charged. The person who is detained does have a license for the registered gun, so we're going to look into this to see if any crime has been committed," said Lt. Phil Cooley, Fresno Police Department.

Police say the man initially refused to leave the house when they arrived, but they eventually convinced him to come outside.
