DA Stollsteimer Announces Charges in Assault on Postal Worker

District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer announced charges today against Khaheem Pharr, 22, of Chester, in connection with an assault on a postal worker on July 1, 2023. The charges include solicitation of murder, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, terroristic threats, and related firearms charges.

Our system for distributing mail cannot function unless carriers feel confident about their physical safety. That is why today’s charges are so important: we want to remind the community that we have a zero tolerance for threatening behavior directed at mail carriers, and we will prosecute bad actors to the fullest extent of the law,” said District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer.
