Machete-wielding juvenile arrested after slashing Lowell mail carrier
A juvenile is facing charges after allegedly attacking and slashing a Lowell mail carrier with a machete on Tuesday night.
The male United States Postal worker told police he was finishing a delivery on Porter Street when he returned to his mail truck to find it already occupied. The juvenile suspect then allegedly pointed an airsoft rile at the postal worker. When the mail carrier attempted to defend himself, the suspect then grabbed a machete from his wristband and slashed at the victim, slicing open his right hand and wrist. The suspect then fled the scene, Lowell police say.
