HAYWARD -- A trio of gunmen tied up a man inside his Cherryland home and robbed him over the weekend, making off with cash, jewels and other valuables, police said.

During the Sunday morning attack in the 21000 block of Western Boulevard, the suspects taped the 23-year-old victim's hands, feet and mouth as they ransacked his home, Sgt. Mark Ormsby said.

About 8:11 a.m. that day, three men entered the victim's home -- two of them armed with handguns, Ormsby said. They reportedly tied up the resident and stole money, jewelry and electronics from his house.

The trio then ran from the home in an unknown direction.

About four minutes later, the resident's mother walked into her son's house and found him tied up. She untied him and called 911, police said.

The resident was not injured, police said.

All three suspects were in their 20s, police said. The first is described as black, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-9, 160 pounds with dreadlocks and a light goatee. He wore a gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. The second suspect is white or Latino, weighs 250 to 300 pounds and has short brown hair. The third suspect is black man, 5-foot-10 with a thin build and short dreadlocks. He wore a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.

The home invasion remained under investigation Wednesday.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call police at 510-293-7034.
