According to the Flint Police Department, two women allegedly attacked the postal worker in Flint, accosting her outside her mail truck at the River Village Apartments. 

The video showed the attack on the postal worker as a person trying to step in to help the postal worker. Two women held the victim down as they punched her and pulled her hair. They then sped away in their own car.

One of the suspects was arrested on April 8, with another person still under investigation, and a third person no longer being investigated because they were a “peacemaker” during the beating Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton told local media.
