Aliquippa, PA man charged with assaulting mail carrier

ALIQUIPPA — A city man, angry over not getting his mail, assaulted a female mail carrier last month, police said.

Sean Donlin, 40, is charged with two counts of harassment, as well as single counts of simple assault and disorderly conduct.

Aliquippa police said a postal inspector told them that Donlin had a verbal and “slight physical” altercation with the mail carrier on May 7 at 1801 Main St.

The postal inspector and police went to speak with Donlin on May 10, and he claimed that he did not have his key for his mailbox and the mail carrier refused to give him his mail.

Donlin told police that she swatted his hand away and then he went back inside his apartment. He denied putting his hands on the mail carrier.

A witness, though, told police that he saw Donlin approach the mail carrier screaming obscenities and saw him push the mail carrier into the mailbox before leaving.

The mail carrier told police that Donlin demanded that she give him his mail and he tried to reach for it when she pushed his hand away. She said Donlin then used his shoulder to push her into the box, called her an epithet and screamed at her.

Donlin did not get his mail, she said, because she did not know him and he had no identification on him.

A preliminary hearing for Donlin was not scheduled as of Monday.
