A man barricaded himself inside of his Laurelton home after stabbing a postal worker in the face on Monday morning, law enforcement sources said.

According to police, at around noon on March 6, a 49-year-old female postal worker was delivering mail in front of 137-37 220 Place. Robert Powell, 32, who lives at the residence, slashed the victim in the face with an unknown object, causing a deep laceration in her face.

Following the assault, Powell barricaded himself inside of his home and refused to open the door.

The NYPD Emergency Service Unit (ESU) and the hostage negotiation team were called to the scene. The victim was transported to North Shore Manhasset Hospital, where she received stitches, in stable condition.

A short time later, police said, ESU gained entry at the location and took Powell into custody without incident. He was charged with assault, obstruction of government administration and harassment in the second degree.
