A California family was bound by four armed and masked men earlier this week after the group forced their way into the home and used a stun gun to gain compliance, police said.
At approximately 10:40 p.m., Westminster police were dispatched to the residence. Sunday, a woman called 911, whispering that she needed assistance, according to a police news release. Three minutes later, officers arrived and observed four men with handguns fleeing the residence.
Police said that one of the men was identified as Danny Sommay. Sommay was arrested after allegedly throwing his handgun over a brick wall. The police recovered the 9mm handgun, which was reported stolen, they said.
The terrifying incident was captured by security cameras within the residence. Officers discovered five victims inside the home, including an older woman, a 14-year-old boy, a 7-year-old girl, a man, and a woman. Armed with handguns, the suspects allegedly forced their way into the family’s residence. They forced the man to the ground and stunned him with a stun gun.
Four victims were bound in the living room, while the fifth victim hid in a closet and called 911. According to police, the suspects questioned the victims about where they kept their valuables.
Using a helicopter, officers were unable to locate the other suspects.
Sommay was arrested and booked into the Orange County Jail on a $1 million bail.
