An on-duty mailman was arrested Monday after allegedly choking an 11-year-old girl who was supposedly taunting him after the letter carrier inadvertently walked into the women's bathroom at a park, U.S. Postal Service and law enforcement officials said Tuesday.
Daniel Villasenor, 55, allegedly choked the young girl after she laughed at him when he accidentally stepped into the women's restroom at Bristow Park in Commerce, southeast of downtown Los Angeles, on Monday, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
Several witnesses corroborated the girl's story, sheriff's officials said. Villasensor was found nearby and arrested.
The 31-year Postal Service employee is on unpaid leave while the investigation continues, said Richard Mahe, spokesman for USPS. The incident is also being probed by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
