Bellevue Police arrested a 55-year-old postal worker from Newcastle for assault Oct. 3.

Police responded to the reported assault on 160th Avenue Southeast, in front of Phantom Lake Elementary School, at 11:15 a.m., according to a Bellevue Police Department release.

When officers arrived, they learned a postal worker, driving a marked postal-service vehicle, intentionally hit an individual with the postal vehicle she was driving.

The incident started when the victim allegedly saw the postal worker yelling obscenities at another citizen. The victim became concerned about the postal worker’s behavior, and decided to take a photo of the vehicle in order to file a complaint with the postal service.

The victim walked over to the front of the postal vehicle, attempting to photograph it. The suspect then put the postal vehicle into drive and intentionally struck the victim’s leg.

The victim, who police say was not injured in the incident, staggered back and the suspect struck the victim’s leg two additional times.

The victim reported that the postal worker was “laughing hysterically” while she was intentionally driving towards the victim, according to police.

The suspect, a Newcastle resident, was booked at the Bellevue Police Department and interviewed by Bellevue officers and U.S. Postal Inspectors.
