An Amazon delivery driver was arrested after a 67-year-old woman was repeatedly punched after heated words were exchanged in a dispute over the status of the customer’s package.
According to KTVU-TV in Oakland, the incident occurred at Thursday at an apartment complex in Castro City, California. Complex owner Doug Smith told the station a tenant was waiting for a package and received a notification that it had been delivered.
It had not.
She then saw an Amazon delivery driver, a 21-year-old woman named Itzel Ramirez, and asked where her package was. The driver said the tenant would be getting it soon.
After waiting 15 minutes, the tenant went to ask the driver again about the package, Smith said.
What happened next is caught on video.
