VICTORVILLE (AP) — Sheriff’s deputies have used a stun gun to subdue a drunken man with a knife in a San Bernardino County bank.

San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokeswoman Karen Hunt says 29-year-old Gerardo Patino entered the Victorville Bank of America holding a 10-inch knife early Wednesday and demanded that a female bank employee leave with him. The man’s relationship with the woman hasn’t been disclosed.

Hunt told the Victorville Daily Press that deputies used a Taser stun gun to subdue and arrest Patino, who is in jail after being booked for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon.
