SUSPECT: Danny Dixon, JR. 33 year-old, East Palo Alto
On Saturday, August 31, 2013 at approximately 9:20 am, the suspect
entered the victim’s apartment through an unlocked front door. The
suspect took the victim’s cellular phone and exited the apartment.
Several of the victim’s neighbors saw the suspect exit the apartment and
thought he looked suspicious.
The neighbors knocked on the victim’s
door and discovered he was asleep inside and was unaware the suspect had
entered his apartment and taken his cellular phone. The victim called
911 and officers responded and obtained a description of the suspect.
The officers conduct an area check for the suspect but were unable to
locate the suspect at that time. Approximately two hours later, an
officer saw a subject who matched the suspect’s description walking in
the area of James Avenue and Grand Street.
The officer detained the
suspect and had the witnesses brought to the location and they
positively identified the suspect as the man they saw exit the victim’s
residence. The victim’s cellular phone was recovered.
The victim was
not injured during the incident. The suspect was booked into the San
Mateo County Jail for residential burglary.
Anyone with information regarding this incident or this suspect is encouraged to contact Detective Jessica Gray at 650-780-7129.
