Mailman chokes girl, 11, for laughing at him

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A Southland U.S. postal worker was on unpaid leave Tuesday after allegedly assaulting an 11-year-old girl.

KNX 1070′s Claudia Peschiutta reports Daniel Villasensor was arrested this week on suspicion of felony cruelty to a child.

Villasensor, 55, of Temple City, was allegedly involved in a choking incident on Monday afternoon at a bathroom at Bristow Park in the city of Commerce, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

When deputies from the East Los Angeles Sheriff’s Station arrived, the young girl told deputies that a postal worker had choked her with his hands for laughing at him when he tried to use the restroom facilities and inadvertently entered the women’s restroom.
