Ukiah, California Post Office employees attacked in parking lot

An Oregon man was arrested Friday after allegedly attacking postal workers at the Ukiah Post Office, the Ukiah Police Department reported.

According to the UPD, officers responded the Post Office on South Orchard Avenue shortly before 8 a.m. July 31 when it was reported that a man was attacking postal workers. When an officer arrived, he found four employees holding down a suspect who he then placed in handcuffs.

A quick search of the suspect reportedly revealed a .40 caliber Glock pistol in his possession, and an ambulance was summoned for one of the employees who was unable to stand. The employee reportedly had both hips fractured.

The employees reported that the suspect, identified as Timothy D. Raybould, 27, formerly of Oregon,
had parked in the employee parking lot and was seen “looking into employee vehicles and acting suspicious.” When an employee told Raybould he needed to leave, the suspect reportedly attacked him.

After two more employees exited the post office to help their co-worker, all four people fell to the ground, injuring one of the employees. The injured person was transported to Adventist Health Ukiah Valley for treatment.

While searching Raybould’s backpack, officers reportedly located “a loaded Glock model 22 pistol,” and what was believed to be methamphetamine. After determining that Raybould was a convicted felon on active parole out of Oregon, officers arrested him on suspicion of illegal weapons possession, possession of a controlled substance, battery causing great bodily injury and other charges.

Attacking a U.S. Postal employee (s)* is a Federal offense! I’m very sorry about fellow postal workers getting attacked back home in California. I currently work for the postal service in my wife’s home state of Minnesota! Praying that everything will be ok!
