July 19, 2018

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) –

A Memphis man is in jail, accused of grabbing a United States postal worker inappropriately.

The incident happened Saturday as the postal worker went about her route.

The woman said Carnell Holly frequently follows her, yelling obscenities, getting in her way, and trying to grab her.

This time, he made sexual comments to her and grabbed her inappropriately, police said.

Minutes later, Holly jumped on the vehicle and refused to get off, according to investigators. He then kissed the side window of the postal van while the victim honked her horn, yelled at him and took pictures of him before he jumped off the van.

Investigators found Holly days later walking near Jackson Avenue and Decatur Street and took him into custody.

Holly is charged with sexual battery.
