A San Bernardino County family is still shocked and stunned after a terrifying home invasion last weekend.

The burglary happened just after midnight on Sunday in the 700 block of Concord Lane in Redlands.

Stanley Trammel told KTLA’s Shelby Nelson that the four to five masked men who kicked in a back door and set off the family’s alarm system didn’t seem to care at all if anyone was in the house.

According to Trammel, the lights in the house were on while his wife was downstairs watching television. The couple’s 21-year-old son was sleeping upstairs, and he was also upstairs.

“She told me she heard a loud bang and then a second one because the door wouldn’t open the first time they kicked it,” he explained. “Then this man came in and she screamed.”

Trammel says the men, all dressed in black, forced his son out of bed as he tried to fend off one of the intruders with his cane while the man pointed a gun at him.

When his wife tried to get out of the way of the suspects, she tripped and hit her head.

The harrowing ordeal lasted only five to seven minutes, according to Trammel, and the suspects did not say a word to him during the invasion.

It’s unclear what the intruders were looking for and why the family’s home was targeted, but Trammel says there’s another puzzling aspect to the chilling experience.

“We think they were actually looking into the bedrooms, which are all upstairs,” he said. “No one has made any demands about ‘give us your jewelry’ or ‘give us your money.’ They didn’t take anything. I’m more confused than anything because we don’t know why.”

A neighbor’s surveillance cameras show the moment police arrive after the suspects fled.

Officers from the Redlands Police Department set up a perimeter and searched the area, but came up empty-handed.

Some residents on the quiet street say they are now on edge and are considering adding more to their existing security systems.

“These are things that we just don’t expect to happen, and we hope they never happen, but when it happens right in front of your house, that’s way too close for comfort,” neighbor Beatrice Martins told KTLA. “That’s what, honestly, has made us rethink all of our safety protocols around the house.”

Trammel’s wife was taken to hospital and has since been released while she recovers from the fall and the blow to the head.

So far, police have not released any suspect descriptions or made any arrests. Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact Redlands Police.
