A Queensboro Hill man was cuffed after he allegedly chased down a FedEx worker with a bow and arrow earlier this week.
The medieval scene unfolded during the afternoon of Tuesday, April 27, when a 38-year-old FedEx employee was delivering packages along his route in Queensboro Hill, according to the authorities.
Dropping off a package around Lawrence Street and 59th Avenue, the delivery man was approached by 22-year-old Alexander Carrion, who lives in the area, cops said.
