CBS News reported Sunday the postal service suspended mail delivery to the 1300 block of 14th Street in the California city because of a man with a history of domestic violence complaints allegedly attacked mail carriers on several occasions.
One incident reported Jan. 19 said the man swung a broomstick at a carrier at the intersection of 14th Street and Arizona Avenue, CBS reported.
Santa Monica Police said the man was “well known” to the department and has had several interactions with police, CBS reported.
