Man accused of threatening mailman in Youngstown arrested on gun, menacing charges

April 29, 2024


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio  — Reports said a man who brandished a gun Saturday at a postal worker on the West Side was arrested on gun and menacing charges.

Terry Luckey, 34, was booked into the Mahoning County Jail on charges of aggravated menacing, a first-degree misdemeanor; third-degree felony counts of tampering with evidence and being a felon in possession of a firearm; and improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle, a fourth-degree felony.

He is expected to be arraigned later Monday in municipal court.

Luckey was arrested after police were called about 2:10 p.m. Saturday to the 200 block of South Schenley Avenue, where a postal worker said a man in a black SUV threatened him with a gun. When police arrived, the worker pointed to a vehicle nearby that he identified as the suspect’s vehicle.

The mailman told police that Luckey pulled up next to him, said “you know they are killing mailmen around here” while brandishing a handgun, then drove off.

A mailman was killed in March in Warren. An arrest has yet to be made in that case.

Reports said Luckey also has a prior conviction for felonious assault, which also bars him from having or being around guns.
