The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has suspended delivery services to a neighborhood in Santa Monica, California, because of multiple aggression against mail carriers since January, according to a CBS News report.
On January 9, one of the mail carriers was “attacked” by a resident who threatened to beat him up with a broomstick when he was delivering the mail in the early evening hours. According to the report, the mail carrier was not injured and did not press charges.
As a result of the assaults, USPS sent a letter to the area residents indicating that service had been suspended in their neighborhood. The missive explained to the neighbors that “multiple mail carriers have been subject to assaults and threats of assaults from an individual who has not been located or apprehended.”
However, only one of the incidents was reported to authorities, the Santa Monica Police Department told CBS that the suspect is known to officers and that they have had encounters with the subject in the past regarding domestic matters.
