FLATBUSH, Brooklyn (PIX11) — Two Brooklyn women have been arrested after allegedly forcing the tenants of a Flatbush apartment out at gunpoint, robbing them, then squatting in the usurped home — reportedly because they were fed up with white people moving to the area.

Police told PIX11 that Precious Parker, 30, and Sabrina James, 21, accosted a 34-year-old man, a 37-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman who live in a building on Ocean Ave. near Newkirk Ave. Thursday evening.

The pair allegedly threatened to kill the tenants if they didn’t leave the apartment, according to police.

Authorities say Parker and James stole $800 in cash, an iPhone and personal information before forcing the occupants out of the home.

The women were arrested Saturday, and, while being questioned by police, one of the suspects allegedly said she “didn’t like that white people were moving into the area,” according to the New York Daily News.

The suspects have been hit with a slew of charges including robbery, burglary, unlawful imprisonment, criminal possession of a weapon and menacing.
