A USPS mailman has been brutally beaten by two women accused of robbing incentive checks from her van in Flint, Michigan.
The footage shows the two women banging the postman over the back of the head as they wrestle with her on the street just yards from a USPS truck with a badly dented hood.
“Bruh, you hit the postman, they are trying to get that stimulus,” you hear the man recording the attack say.
The postman can eventually break free and the two attackers get back into their 4×4 and run away.
It’s not clear what led to the attack, but the bystander filming is heard saying, “ They hit this post lady car, ” as they take a close look at the mutilated vents on the front of the USPS bus.

An elderly woman tries to intervene at one point, on the left, before the USPS woman later manages to break free and the women decide to get back into their car.
Millions of checks worth $ 1,400 are currently flowing through the mail after Joe Biden signed the US bailout last month to run a third round of stimulus checks.
Flint police confirmed that the postman had not been seriously injured and that there had been one arrest since Thursday afternoon’s incident.
Detectives are continuing the investigation and have not confirmed whether the attack was prompted by stimulus controls in the USPS vehicle.
The images show several young men watching as the women beat up the postman.
At least two young children are also watching in the background.
An elderly lady, who calls the cameraman his ‘grandmother’, tries to intervene but is pulled back by her grandson who warns she may be injured.
The beating lasts at least a minute, from what the video can show, before the women give in and scramble back into a Chevrolet Equinox SUV.
“You are going to jail,” one of the bystanders tells the women as they leave.
The postman is seen chasing their car as they speed away.

About 70 miles northwest of crime-ridden Detroit, Flint consistently ranks as one of the most dangerous cities in the United States.
The Democratic-led city of 100,000 people saw a surge in violence during the pandemic, with 61 murders in 2020, up from 46 the year before – an increase of about a third.
Flint police seized 655 weapons last year, an increase of more than 36 percent from the 415 weapons removed from the streets in 2019.
