The incident happened around 8 a.m. Monday when the victim, 40-year-old Tameka Bordeaux, was followed by a woman screaming expletives and racial slurs at her. Bayonne police have since arrested Claudia Emanuele, who is charged with bias Intimidation and harassment.
Bordeaux told police that she left her home in the morning and saw Emanuele talking to the mail carrier regarding the late delivery of mail.

Bordeaux was able to capture the incident on video, which she turned over to police for investigation.
