What Is It About Working for the Post Office?

Postal dude goes mildly postal:

    Akron- A U.S. Postal Service manager was forced to disrobe and walk naked in front of about a dozen employees yesterday morning by a colleague who threatened to kill her unless she complied.

    Lonnie Wilson, 60, who planned to retire on Friday, is in Summit County Jail, charged with kidnapping, aggravated menacing and gross sexual imposition.

    ….Wilson had worked for the Postal Service for 24 years and had no prior problems.

    The 43-year-old Akron woman worked in the same office area, in marketing, but normally did not interact with him. Sullivan did not know how long she had worked there.

    At 8:30 a.m. yesterday, Wilson approached the woman, became angry and said he was going to kill her if she didn’t do what he said, according to police reports. He ordered her to disrobe and forced her to walk in front of employees. He also hugged her and told her to kiss him, the report said.

    Sullivan said Wilson, at 6 feet 5 and 235 pounds, can be physically intimidating. He did not have a weapon, but employees were scared. []
