Three young teens are in custody after a resident interrupted them burglarizing his home.
On Thursday at approximately just before noon, Redwood City Police officers responded to the 1000 block of Arlington Road on a report of an interrupted residential burglary.
The victim, a 72-year-old male, had called 9-1-1 and reported two males had been in his backyard and attempted to pry open a rear sliding door. When the victim confronted the subjects they fled on foot.
