While the driver was delivering a package to the Country Oaks Apartments in the Fairbun Mays neighborhood Sunday afternoon, she left her car running unattended.
According to the police report, at least four men rushed towards the truck to steal several packages inside.
Video taken from a nearby home shows the thieves jumping from the front of the truck and running to the back where the door was already open.
We see them getting back inside the Amazon van and filling their arms with packages.
The video camera then turned to the driver, in the middle of the delivery trip, who suddenly stopped walking and saw her truck being destroyed.
Some of the bandits even slipped and fell to the ground, before quickly getting up, and they were in a hurry to continue the crime, but there was no one to stop them.
According to the New York Post, investigators are still working to determine the identity of the suspects and the circumstances of the robbery. At this stage, the stolen items are not yet known.
The Amazon robbery came hours after a crowd of motorists blocked a FedEx tractor trailer to steal sealed packages in Memphis on Saturday.
Three men were arrested for their involvement in the looting after a security guard at an apartment complex stopped them with several packages in their car.
In another recent attack on delivery workers, a UPS driver in Maryland became the victim of an armed carjacking in broad daylight in Maryland.
In footage filmed last Thursday in Prince George’s County, a group of thieves surrounded the driver before they boarded the company’s large brown truck.
