A couple in Sunnyvale faced an unsettling situation last week after police say a postal carrier started acting strangely, threatening people and even injuring a police dog.

The postal worker was apparently making his rounds on Cordilleras Avenue last Wednesday, according to Sunnyvale Public Safety, when he suddenly walked into the middle of the street and began talking out loud to himself.

A couple was driving down the street and stopped when they couldn’t get around him, then started taking video on their phones when the worker turned his attention to them.

The husband and wife asked not to be identified because they said they were scared of the worker.

“He kept pointing at me and saying he’s going to shoot me, shoot my wife, and shoot everybody in the car, basically,” the man said. “So I started getting scared. He kept reaching into his pocket, at the same time — with his other hand — he kept making gestures that he’s going to shoot me.”

The postal workers kept getting more and more agitated, the man said, and started using racial slurs.
