Area police are investigating the assault and robbery of a postal worker in the 2900 block of Camino Diablo in unincorporated Walnut Creek Monday.
Two men, described only as black with one slender and wearing a hoodie, attacked the worker at approximately 12:55 p.m., beating the worker about the head with a weapon of un-described type – possibly a replica.
The worker was treated for head wounds and other injuries suffered during the attack. The thieves got away with the worker’s keys and other personal items.
The two men are believed to be driving a black BMW SUV with chrome trim around the rims and windows.
