Peninsula mailman’s jaw broken in vicious attack

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO – A 40-year-old man is scheduled to appear in federal court next month on a charge he assaulted a U.S. Postal Service letter carrier in South San Francisco.

The attack, which left the letter carrier with a fractured jaw, was reported on the 300 block of Alta Loma Drive about 3:45 p.m. Nov. 2, according to an affidavit Postal Inspector Sukhdeep Singh wrote in support of the criminal complaint against Jaime Antonio Alvarado.

Singh said the letter carrier was delivering mail on his assigned route when he noticed a man later identified as Alvarado and a young woman, who appeared to be arguing, walking on the west side of the street. The letter carrier told Singh he did not know them.

Alvarado pointed at the letter carrier and told the young woman, “You see that guy there, he doesn’t want to talk to you because I’ll (expletive) him up,” Singh said. The young woman had tears in her eyes and Alvarado was reportedly poking her in the chest.
