Road Rage, Assault at Bala Post Office, Police Say

Also in this week's blotter: a restaurant employee's cell phone is stolen.

Lower Merion reported the following incidents to news media at a Monday briefing. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, they do not indicate guilt or a conviction.

Theft: An Olive Garden employee had her cell phone stolen from a cashier station on Feb. 21 while working. The phone is valued at $350, police said. 

DUI: A 26-year-old Upper Darby man was cited for driving under the influence at the Belmont and Old Belmont intersection at 3:02 a.m. on Feb. 24, police said. He registered .135 on a blood alcohol content test.

Simple assault, road rage: Police responded to the Bala Cynwyd Post Office at 5:14 p.m. on Feb. 19 on report of a fight in progress. When police arrived, one man involved in the fight had already left; the victim told police he was driving on Montgomery Avenue near old Lancaster Avenue when he was cut off by a man in a white sedan, according to the report. The two men cursed at each other, and then the man in the white sedan followed the complainant to the post office, where both men got out of their vehicles and began yelling in the parking lot. The complainant told police that the other man “coldcocked” him, then left. A witness corroborated the story, police said.
