The USPS has stopped delivering mail at every address in a neighborhood in Santa Monica because mail carriers keep getting attacked. The assaults began in late January when a man wielding a broom allegedly attacked a postal worker who was going about their route. The same attacker is allegedly behind two more assaults reported in February and March.

Residents in the area were delivered notices from USPS, disclosing that “delivery service is hereby suspended to all addresses located on the 13-hundred block of 14th street.” The residents have been told that in order to receive their mail they have to stop at their local USPS on 7th Street and pick it up in person. The notice did not cite a timeframe or date for mail delivery to resume.

The alleged attacker is a 38-year old homeless man often seen in the area, whom an elderly resident let into their home. Some claim the attacker will often approach with a golf club over his shoulder. Until then, residents have to pick up their mail in person at the post office.

The USPS is also investigating the assaults, but the agency says no one’s been caught. Only one assault has been officially reported, and even then the victim declined to have the case prosecuted. The suspect is well-known amongst their ranks, as they’ve had several issues with him in the past.
