USPS resumes mail delivery to neighborhood 3 months after mailman was attacked by dog

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) – Paulette Williams called the 19 News Troubleshooter Team in September after a United States Postal Service (USPS) mailman was attacked by her neighbor’s dog in August and the post office stopped delivering mail.

“The guy came and grabbed it, they had to choke the dog to grab him off the mailman because the mailman was hollering come get your dog, come get your dog,” said one neighbor.

Williams lives on East 114th St. in Cleveland. She told 19 News this isn’t the first time the dog has bitten someone.

“He came straight towards me and was very aggressive,” said Williams.

Since the dog attack, Williams and her neighbors have had to pick up their mail from a post office about 15 minutes away.
