POSTAL WORKER ATTACKED ON THE JOB NOW SEEKING JUSTICE
The neighbors and family of Phillips know just how much she loves her job.
But last month, the unthinkable happened.
“Someone just followed her on her first street of the day and attacked her in the morning,” said Simpson.
It’s Phillips’ 8th year working as a postal worker, and 3rd year in Cushing. Her family says that her route has never been a concern.
“Christmas just happened, and she had the best people she took care of on her street leaving little gifts and notes,” said Simpson.
“The person was poking her face, asking her why she made his dogs bark,” said Simpson. “After he hit her in the face, she pushed him away, and it escalated from there.”
The family recalls Phillips saying he pushed her into a puddle on the side of the street.
“It’s a lot of emotional trauma. She’s scared to go to work, confused why this is happening,” said Simpson.
The family now wants her story to be shared in hopes there’s justice at the end.
