Resident Interrupts Teens Burglarizing His Home

The victim was a 72-year-old man. The three teens were 15-16 years old.


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.

When officers arrived they immediate located one of the suspects and detained him. A perimeter was established and officers began searching the neighborhood for the outstanding suspects.

An alert neighbor contacted the officers and told them there were three suspects - two who had entered the victim’s backyard and one suspect who had been acting as a look-out. The neighbor provided a description of the suspects and the direction they fled.

The two additional suspects were located by officers and taken into custody.

Two of the three suspects are 15-year-old Redwood City residents. The third suspect is a 16-year-old Newark resident.

All three suspects were booked into the San Mateo County Juvenile Hall for attempted residential burglary and conspiracy.
