A 21-year-old Amazon driver reportedly berated an elderly woman about “white privilege” before savagely beating the 67-year-old in Castro Valley, California.
The driver, Itzel Ramirez, engaged in a heated verbal exchange with the unnamed victim before unleashing a horrific onslaught of sucker punches to the back of the head and the face of the much older woman.
The vicious encounter was caught on video from multiple angles, which you can see below.
Ramirez reportedly verbally berated the victim about her “white privilege” before the attack, according to KTVU FOX2.
“I believe the Amazon driver said something about ‘your white privilege,’ and my tenant said, ‘You don’t need to be a bitch about it,’ turned around and walked away,” said apartment complex owner Doug Smith.
Ramirez claims she hit the woman in self-defense.
“We can’t have our delivery drivers or people out there in the community attacking people, punching people in the face,” said sheriff’s Sgt. Ray Kelly.
The Alameda County Sheriff’s Department said that the victim suffered visible injuries and perhaps a broken nose.
“It was frightening to see an Amazon driver do that, somebody who we allow onto the property to provide us a service,” Smith told local station KRON4.

Ramirez was arrested and is being held on $100,000 bail and will be arraigned Monday on two counts of elder abuse and battery involving serious injury.
“This (incident) does not reflect the high standards we have for drivers who deliver our packages,” Amazon said in a statement. “We take these matters seriously and this individual is no longer delivering Amazon packages.”
