Police identify man accused of assaulting mail carriers
The United States Postal Service suspended letter delivery on the 1300 block of 14th Street in Santa Monica after a resident allegedly attacked multiple mail carriers.
The USPS said there is no estimated time to when mail delivery will resume and residents will have to pick up their mail at the post office.
“I mean, you hear the post office as rain, sleet or snow,” said neighbor Danielle Venturino. “They’re supposed to bring you your mail no matter what. For them to stop mail, it made me feel really unsafe.”
The Santa Monica Police Department and neighbors have identified 38-year-old Devon Morgan as the man accused of assaulting multiple mail carriers. According to his neighbors, he’s often incoherent and angry.
