Police: Women Force Tenants out of Apartment at Gunpoint: ‘Tired of White People Moving In’

Warner Todd Huston, Breitbart, September 9, 2014

Two New York women were arrested Monday after allegedly forcing the dwellers of a Brooklyn apartment to flee their home at gunpoint. The attack was apparently racially motivated, as police claim one woman said she was tired of white people moving into her neighborhood.

The pair of African Americans knocked on the door of an apartment in a building on Ocean Avenue at 9:30 PM. Police say they then barged into the apartment threatening residents with a gun.

Once inside, Precious Parker, 30, and Sabrina James, 23, allegedly robbed the three inhabitants of $800, an iPhone, and personal information before demanding that the three vacate the apartment.

The two then stayed in the apartment with the intent of squatting, police say.

A police source told the New York Daily News that the attack had a racial component, too. One of the attackers was quoted as saying she didn’t like the idea “that white people were moving into the area.”
