The United States Postal Service has suspended its services for one block of residents in a Santa Monica neighborhood, after several reported assaults took place on carriers delivering mail in the area.

He reportedly swung a broomstick at the carrier, though they were not injured in the attack.

According to Santa Monica Police Department's Public Information Officer, the suspect is well-known amongst their ranks, as they've had several issues with him in the past - most of which are domestic.

Residents in the area were delivered notices from USPS, disclosing that "delivery service is hereby suspended to all addresses located on the 13-hundred block of 14th street.".

The notice continued to state that "multiple carriers have been subjected to assaults and threats of assault from an individual who has not been located or apprehended.".

CBS reporters reached out to Santa Monica police, where they learned that only one assault has been officially reported, and even then the victim declined to have the case prosecuted.

They learned that the USPS has its own law enforcement agency, though they also have not contacted Santa Monica Police in regards to the report filed in January. »

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Monday that Russia's unprovoked war with Ukraine was "meant to put an end" to US-led global domination and the expansion of NATO, a report said.
