Suspects Threaten Man with Machete and Tie Him Up, Then Rob Him

STOCKTON — The Stockton Police Department is looking for four suspects who threatened a Stockton man with a machete and tied him up inside his home Saturday then left with his belongings.

The 31-year-old reportedly let the men into his apartment on North El Dorado Street to use the bathroom, according to the Stockton Police Department.

That’s when one of the men held a machete to the victim’s neck, telling him that if he moved the suspect would kill him.

All four men began ridiculing the 31-year-old as they went through his belongings then stole some of his clothes and a bottle of prescription medication.
