Video: Postal worker charged in assault of woman
A Flatbush woman says she was hospitalized due to an attack by her postal carrier, who is now facing charges.
Madeline Sierra, 56, says she heard someone shouting from her hallway on Tuesday and found that it was her carrier outside.
Sierra says when she asked the woman what was going on, the woman threatened her.
“She started cursing me out. She wasn’t letting me talk,” said Sierra. “I was asking her, ‘what seems to be the problem?’”
Sierra took out her phone and recorded a video, which shows someone lunge toward her and knock the phone to the ground.
