Kokomo man arrested for attacking postal worker

KOKOMO, Ind. – A Kokomo man was arrested for trying to rob a postal worker on Monday afternoon.

At around 1:45, a 23-year-old woman was delivering mail on the north side of the city when she was attacked.

“We just don’t need that in this neighborhood,” said neighbor Susan Shackelford.

Police say Elisha Graham approached the postal worker several times throughout her route, demanding a package. The postal worker refused to give Graham the package, which was addressed to a vacant home. When she went back to her truck, she told police Graham grabbed her and put a knife to her back.
