A group of people have been arrested after allegedly taking over a disabled veteran's apartment in Santa Ana.

Police said six men and two underage girls forced their way into the 62-year-old's apartment on the 3300 block of West Camile Street and started using it as a gang headquarters.

Authorities checked on the victim after he told an acquaintance he was afraid to leave his home.

The six men were identified as: Andrew Perez, 19; Robert Figueroa, 40; Edgar Perez, 25; Anthony De La Cruz, 18; Steven Quirino, 20; Curt Rodriguez, 18.

All eight suspects were charged with false imprisonment and elder abuse.
