Waterloo woman charged in postal worker assault


A Waterloo woman faces a Simple Assault charge after confronting a postal worker.

Officials say a postal worker was delivering mail Monday afternoon in the 800 block of Fairview Avenue. She told police she felt threatened when a small Chihuahua dog ran at her. She sprayed the dog with pepper spray and the dog ran away.

Later, the owner of the dog, 25-year-old Sabrina Relaz, asked the postal worker what she had done to her dog. The carrier explained she'd used pepper spray on the dog. Relaz then threw a syrup bottle at the carrier, hitting her in the chest. 

Animal Control assisted the Waterloo police in the investigation.
