Juvenile arrested for July assault and robbery of Shreveport Postal Carrier

SHREVEPORT, La. – Shreveport Police have arrested a 16-year-old female juvenile in connection with the beating and robbery of a Postal Worker earlier this month.

On July 11, 2020 just before 3:00 p.m., SPD officers responded to the 2000-block of Horton Avenue after reports of an assault on a Postal Carrier.

The victim was allegedly approached by a young female who asked for the mail for her residence. When the Postal Carrier said that it had already been dropped off, the juvenile snuck up behind her before attacking her and attempting to steal the victim’s cellphone.

Investigators with the Tactical Robbery Unit and the United Stated Postal Service conducted surveillance on the suspect’s residence and were able to take the juvenile female into custody as she exited her home.
