RATON, N.M. (KRQE) – Police say a Raton United States postal worker was beaten and left for dead Wednesday morning by a man using a brick as a weapon.
It happened after 10 a.m. in the 600 block of North 2nd Street; that’s just half a mile from the Raton Post Office on Park Avenue.
When police got to the scene, they found 62-year-old David Boyer, a postal worker from Trinidad, Colorado, face down on the ground. Officers say he was bleeding from the head.
“He had a cut to the back of his head, he was bleeding, when he fell face down, he broke his nose,” Raton Police Chief John Garcia said.
