NH Man’s Postal Assault Trial Begins in Federal Court

October 23, 2023


BURLINGTON — A New Hampshire man, who is accused of assaulting and knocking out a U.S. Postal delivery worker in Essex County a year ago, is due to go on trial Monday in U.S. District Court in Burlington.

Trevor Frizzell, 24, has pleaded not guilty to a federal charge of assaulting postal worker Paul Burch, 66, as he made his official rounds in the town of Brunswick in the Northeast Kingdom on the afternoon of Oct. 25, 2022, court records show.

Essex County State’s Attorney Vince Illuzzi initially charged Frizzell with two felonies:  aggravated assault and assault and robbery.  Frizzell pleaded not guilty in Vermont Superior Court in Guildhall and those cases are still pending.

Frizzell was listed in Vermont court records as living in Colebrook, N.H. after his state arrest, but he wrote on his release papers in federal court in January after his arraignment that he was living in Stratford, N.H.
