A Crown Heights family appeared in court Wednesday to fight for a home they've lived in for over 70 years.
Community groups, including the Crown Heights Tenant Association, have been stationed outside of the Robinson family home 24/7 to prevent what they claim are illegal eviction attempts from taking place.
The family claims they are victims of deed fraud by Menachem Gurevitch. News 12 also reached out to Netz Capital Management, which claims the property is not affiliated with it and that Gurevitch is a private property owner.
The Robinson family says it wants an investigation of the deed, saying there was no authorized transfer at any time.
"We are victims. My grandmother never received a dime from these people. They tried to break in twice and busted open the roof, kicked the other door. They did it three times in one day, another harassment scare tactic," says Robinson family members Sherease Torain and Helen Robinson.
Community advocates tell News 12 they will be staying put outside of the home.
News 12 is told the Robinsons and Gurevitch are due back in court on Feb. 24.
