A reputed Santa Ana gang member was pistol-whipped with his own handgun and stabbed in the back by one of his victims in a foiled robbery attempt, police said Tuesday night.

The suspect, described as a juvenile, attempted to rob three residents after bursting into a home with another alleged gang member in the 400 block of South Parton Street in Santa Ana on Tuesday afternoon, police said.

“Where’s the gold? Where’s the gold?” the attackers shouted as they attempted to take gold, cellphones and other items from the victims, said Cpl. Anthony Bertagna of the Santa Ana Police Department.

As he looked for items, the juvenile fell while trying to climb a stepladder in a closet and dropped his gun, which accidentally fired a round into a wall. That prompted someone  to call 911, police said.
