Mailman Assaulted on North Main Street


A United States Postal Service delivery man was attacked and robbed near North Main Street while delivering mail.

The man, 56-year-old, was delivering mail on Saturday at around 3pm in the area of North Main Street when a group — 5 men — thugs approached him and attempted to snatch his chain from his neck.

The man, who was walking to his vehicle after placing letters into mailboxes, resisted the five when one of them snatched his chain. When the group sensed resistance, they began to physically assault the mailman.

The man was not seriously hurt, according to Paterson Police.
