Baker allegedly pointed a revolver at one of the victims' heads and demanded money. Anderson allegedly told the victims he didn't like Hispanic people and said "they need to be kicked out of the neighborhood."

Baker's bail was set at $100,000. Anderson and the other suspect bonded out. Baker is due back in court next month.
