The details of an incident that occurred inside the Macy's store at Genesee Valley Center are sketchy at this time, but Flint Township Police are working to piece it all together.

WARNING:  The viral video of the incident is difficult to watch and may be considered offensive. We have chosen to only include an edited version with the offending audio bleeped out. Unedited versions of the video have been shared on other social platforms.

The clip depicts a white man getting beaten by a black man inside the Macy's store. Although video of what preceded the incident is not available, reports indicate that the white man was overheard on the phone using a racial epitaph to refer to the black man.

FT Quay posted the original video on Facebook saying that he chose not to post the video in its entirety.

After the white man is initially knocked to the ground, he is heard saying, "What are you doing that for?"

As he attempts to crawl away, he's heard saying, "I didn't touch you, I'm sorry," before being punched two more times.

Flint Township Police Lt. Brad Wangler tells Mlive that his department is investigating and attempting to sort out what led to the incident.

Macy's and Genesee Valley Center have added security personnel since the Monday (6/15) incident.

Andrea Schwartz, senior director of media relations for Macy's tells Mlive that her company takes these incidents very seriously and says Macy's and Genesee Valley Center are giving investigators their full cooperation.

“We are deeply saddened about the incident that took place on Monday at Macy’s Genesee Valley as the safety of Macy’s customers and colleagues  is our top priority,” she said.
