Deputies responded about 2:30 a.m. to the 5900 block of Arden Avenue (map), where multiple men had bound the occupants of the house with duct tape, said Detective Ray Mariedth of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

The men, who were armed with guns, ransacked the house for 45 to 60 minutes, searching for cash, jewelry and other valuables, authorities said.

The robbers used a stun gun on the son, “to try to get him to give them anything else that he may have,” Mariedth said. “Obviously, they were both very scared. The mother is extremely scared.”

The men were described only as black men in their 20s or 30s.

No other information was immediately available.
