WEST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Police are investigating an armed robbery at a Connecticut post office.

West Haven police Lt. Robert Proto says three masked men dressed in black entered the branch post office on Farwell Street at about 9:30 a.m. Thursday, vaulted the counter and stole cash boxes before fleeing on foot toward a residential neighborhood. It was unclear how much money was stolen.

Proto says one of the men appeared to be armed with a rifle.

There were customers in the post office at the time, but police say no one was hurt.

The post office was closed while police processed the scene, but mail was still being delivered.
