Several home invasions targeting members of the Indian American community have been reported in California recently.
The latest incident happened when a group of men held a family at gunpoint and stole gold and other valuables, police reported.
According to the police, the victims said the robbers are targeting them because they’re Indian.
Neighbors told Channel 2 that the invasion is the second case like this in Alpharetta in several months.
In September, police said that five masked men tied up another Indian family and stole gold. Cobb County police said they are working a similar case.
“It’s so bad for our community,” restaurant owner Satish Musunuri said, according to the Atlanta Constitution. Musunuri said word of the attacks is spreading quickly through Atlanta’s Indian community. “Now, all the people are scared about this.”
Similar robberies have also been reported in Sunnyvale, Calif.
