DALLAS (AP) _ A man apparently upset over getting bills in his mailbox stabbed a mail carrier in the back with a steak knife, police said.

Raymond Bell, 35, was finishing deliveries to an apartment complex Tuesday when the assailant walked up behind him and stabbed him in the upper back. Bell was treated at a hospital and released.

Robby Doyle Calhoun, 30, surrendered to police and was charged with attempted murder and assaulting a federal worker. He was held without bail.

Police said they weren’t certain about the motive, but Detective Paul Lachnitt said: ″I think he didn’t like the type of mail he received.″

″He didn’t like getting bills,″ Lachnitt said. ″He told the maintenance man the day before he was going to get the mailman.″
