Resident attacks mailman, mail stops for entire complex
HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)- Some people in a senior housing complex say they haven’t had a mail delivery in a month. The mail stopped coming after an incident with the letter carrier who delivers there.
“How hard is it to get your mail? I just had surgery in December,” said Charles Jernigan, Hartford.
“I can’t walk, I’m handicapped,” said Mary Betha-Campbell, Hartford.
“You can’t be slipping and sliding to catch the bus for a whole hour, and you have to go over there every day,” said Beatrice Smith, Hartford.
There are forty apartments at 402 Albany Avenue where many residents are elderly and some bed ridden. They say the post office stopped delivering their mail more than a month ago because one of the residents attacked the letter carrier slapping and spitting on him.
