An Amazon delivery driver has been caught on camera repeatedly hitting a woman who had been asking for her parcel.

The incident happened on Thursday evening (local time) in California, NBC reported, and the whole ordeal was captured on a security camera.

In the video, the 67-year-old woman is seen outside an apartment complex along with an Amazon driver who has been identified as 21-year-old Itzel Ramirez.

The 67-year-old woman, who lives in that building, is seen speaking to Ramirez before walking off.

Ramirez suddenly turns around and starts hitting the woman repeatedly.

Doug Smith owns the building the woman lives in and he said she had asked Ramirez about her parcel, who told her to be patient, NBC Bay Area reported.

The woman waited about 15 minutes and then approached Ramirez again.

The Alameda County Sheriff's Office report said Ramirez said something about "white privilege", NBC reported.

The woman then called Ramirez a "b**ch", according to FOX2 KTVU. It was after that Ramirez attacked the woman.

Sergeant Ray Kelly, from the Alameda County Sheriff's Office, told FOX2 KTVU Ramirez hit the woman multiple times and broke her nose.

The woman called the authorities and declined to be taken to hospital.

The Amazon delivery driver claims she hit the woman in an act of self defence and she was arrested on two felony charges for the alleged assault.

"This does not reflect the high standards we have for our drivers who deliver our packages," Amazon said in a statement, according to NBC.

"We take these matters seriously and this individual is no longer delivering Amazon packages."
