(Newser) – A 3-year-old boy was abducted from his California home yesterday after two gunmen bound his mother and four siblings, reports AP. "We have no idea why they took the child," said a police spokesman. "They were strangers to the whole family." The gunmen burst into the San Bernardino house yesterday, subdued the family, ransacked the home, and stole money and property, said police, who have issued an Amber Alert for Briant Rodriquez.
