A “Love and Hip Hop” cast member witnessed her friend’s Maserati being stolen at a gas station in Atlanta, authorities said.
Alexis Skyy, whose real name is Alexis Mcfarland, shared her friend’s Instagram post about the robbery, which happened in the early hours of Sunday morning.
“I know you probably just thought it was two girls & a nice car but it’s DEEPER THAN THAT!” Sabrina Peterson said in the post. “Let’s call it a mistake!”
Mcfarland and Peterson were at the QuikTrip in the 1600 block of Howell Mill Road, according to an incident report obtained by AJC.com.
According to the report, Peterson parked her 2019 black Maserati Levante GranLusso SUV near the air machine facing Defoor Avenue. She left the SUV running while she got out and walked over to Mcfarland, the report said.
While the women were distracted, a man with dreads got out of a silver Corvette and hopped into Peterson’s car through the passenger side door, the police report said. He then sped off.
Police tried to track Peterson’s iPhone that was left inside the SUV, but the man had powered it off. Peterson was not able to provide tag information for the car, police said.
In her post, Peterson contended that she and Mcfarland were robbed at gunpoint. It’s unclear if the man had a gun during the robbery.
“The blessing is my son or her (Mcfarland’s) daughter wasn’t in the car because you would have taken our kids too,” Peterson’s post said.
Mcfarland is a reality TV personality known for “Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood” and “Love and Hip Hop: New York.”
Peterson is the founder of Glam University, an organization that aims to educate women on finances.
In a second Instagram post, Peterson announced a rally at the scene of the auto theft “after numerous messages from women in the @cityofatlantaga that have been victims of crimes at this location.”
“I think it’s a sad epidemic that our younger generation is preying on single women and women with children at gas stations,” she said. “WE WILL STAND.”
