The video shows the suspects checking windows, looking for a way to break in. A suspect can even been seen taking out a back porch light.
At one point, the elderly resident opened the back door and a man grabbed her and forced her back into the home.
"Took her into the bedroom and tied her up and left her on the bed," said Arden Wiltshire, San Bernardino Sheriff's Department. "As he was doing that, the three other suspects came into the back yard, and proceeded inside the residence to ransack it ... looking for any valuables."
The surveillance video caught good pictures of at least two of the suspects. One is about 5'10", with short hair and long sideburns. He was wearing a St. Louis Cardinal's baseball cap. The other man is described as being 5'8", with short hair and was wearing a light-colored hoodie.
