(CBS DETROIT) – Flint Police have identified two men in connection to a viral attack at a Macy’s store.

Police say they are questioning the 18 and 22-year-old on how the incident started.

A Macy’s spokesperson said the incident was unprovoked but a Facebook post claims the victim — who is a Macy’s employee — used a racial slur.

Macy’s says security has increased at the store.

    Typical racist CBS news. Had this been a white man attacking a black man, rest assured, the headline would include the race of the victim and the attacker. There is the white privilege – to be ignored when attacked.

  3. “but a Facebook post claims the victim — who is a Macy’s employee — used a racial slur.”

    Why don’t you print who made that claim on Facebook?? It was DEMARQUAY PALMER, THE FILMER!!! Man, media/news just isn’t what it used to be. To omit that fact is something I’d fail a middle school student on for lack of pertinent information on a writing assignment.
