Carlos Avenue Residential Burglars Arrested

An alert neighbor reported the man and teen to the police just in time.

A 20-year-old man and 17-year-old teen male are in custody after breaking into a local home - with a vigilant neighbor watching the whole time.

Nomiar Jonasian, 20, of Redwood City, and his 17-year-old male accomplice, were spotted entering the yard of a home on the 700 block of Carlos Avenue just before 1 p.m. Wednesday, the police reported.

The neighbor reported seeing one of the two suspects enter the yard and then knock on the home's front door. When no one answered, the suspect reportedly tried a back door to the home, found it unlocked, and entered the residence. The neighbor promptly called the Redwood City Police Department.

While officers were enroute to the location, the neighbor saw the suspect leave the residence and join the other suspect in a white pick-up truck and drive away.

Officers located and stopped the vehicle on Orchard Avenue at Woodside Road. The vehicle was occupied by Jonasian and the 17-year-old juvenile.

Jonasian was identified as the subject who entered the residence, and the juvenile acted as a "look-out" during the burglary. 

Jonasian and the juvenile were arrested for residential burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary.

My house has been burglarized twice with no one ever being caught! Awesome job on the neighbor's part, we need to be more vigilant! We HAVE to lock every door, window and anywhere else these people can get in. To all residents out there, please watch out for your neighbor!
