Brooklyn residents Precious Parker, 30 and Sabrina James, 23 are facing charges of robbery and unlawful imprisonment after they reportedly robbed, then forced three White tenants out of their apartment building at gunpoint just because they were ‘tired of white people moving into the area,’ according to a police report states the New York Daily News.
The Black duo reportedly knocked on the door of the three White apartment dwellers in question, whose names have not yet been released. The residents, two men ages 34 and 37 and a woman age 25, were allegedly ordered by Parker and James at gunpoint to vacate their apartment or face death.
Parker and James then reportedly stole $800 in cash, an iPhone and personal information from the victims, who feared for their lives and fled from the apartment. According to an unnamed police official who spoke to the Daily News, after the residents left, both Parker and James then took over the residence and became squatters.
According to the law enforcement source, Parker and James zeroed in on the three White tenants possibly because of their race, class and the fact that their neighborhood has had an influx of White people and the pair disliked this immensely.
Parker and James were arrested while in the apartment they allegedly took over and a handgun was also uncovered by police investigators during the process.
