A man was arrested Saturday after he allegedly threatened to kill his girlfriend and burn down the house with Molotov cocktails in a domestic dispute.


Samuel Bengoa, 32, had reportedly barricaded himself in a bedroom and lit the bedroom door on fire with the bombs when deputies arrived at about 4 p.m. on the 7800 block of Oxford on June 26, according to a report from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.


Bengoa allegedly threw several objects at the deputies through a window he had broken. The deputies then threw a stink bomb through the window to distract him.


The deputies proceeded to rush into the bedroom with a shotgun loaded with non-lethal rounds and fired at Bengoa. When Bengoa reportedly continued to charge the deputies, he was Tased. Bengoa was then taken into custody.


Bengoa was transported to the Desert Valley Medical Center and later booked at the West Valley Detention Center on charges of possession of a dangerous weapon, resisting deputies and arson.


Molotov cocktails are improvised incendiary weapons made by filling a bottle with a flammable substance, often gasoline, and then inserting a burning cloth or other ignition device through the top.
