ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – A postal worker is recovering on Friday night after Arlington Police said he was attacked and beaten unconscious while delivery mail.

Investigators arrested Chris and Jonathan Allahverdi and charged them with felony assault. Detectives believe the mail carrier was delivering mail at a communal box when a nearby business owner demanded his mail. They said the mail carrier told him he would have to wait. Police believe that is when the assault began.

“We don’t believe it’s going to be life-threatening injuries but anytime you’re knocked unconscious, that’s a very scary deal,” said Lt. Christopher Cook with Arlington Police.

Investigators think the suspect’s security cameras at his business captured the entire ordeal. Police on Friday began working on obtaining a search warrant to access the footage.

Since the victim is a government employee, the feds could eventually take over the case.
