A pair of women in Brooklyn reportedly took their detest of gentrification to extremes, threatening their neighbors at gunpoint until they fled out of pure fear.
According to the New York Daily News, 30-year-old Precious Parker and 23-year-old Sabrina James knocked on their neighbors door at their Flatbush apartment on Saturday night. When the residents—two men, ages 37 and 34, and a woman, age 25—answered the door, the armed Parker and James ordered them to move out or risk being killed.
The Daily News adds that Parker and James proceeded to steal an iPhone, $800, and personal information from the trio before squatting in their apartment until police arrived. A police source told the Daily News that their actions were motivated by frustration, as "white people were moving into the area."
The duo was charged with unlawful imprisonment and robbery.
