Neighbor Interrupts Residential Burglary

The attempted burglary occurred Friday afternoon on Sixth Avenue in Belmont.

The sound of breaking glass alerted a Belmont man to a residential burglary happening at a neighbor's home on Friday afternoon.

According to spokesperson, Lt. Pat Halleran, at approximately 12:40 on Friday, a man went to investigate the sound of breaking glass coming from a neighbor's house in the 1400 block of Sixth Avenue. When  arrived, he saw an unknown man running from the backyard of the residence. He called 9-1-1 and several Belmont Police Department units responded to the scene.

The officers conducted an extensive search of the area but at this time they have not located the suspect.

Polie say the suspect is described as a white male in his 40’s with no facial hair, approximately 5’11” tall with a stocky build.  He was wearing a black colored baseball cap with a white colored rim around the bill, a black t-shirt, black shorts and tennis shoes.  No suspect vehicle was seen.  He was reportedly last seen on foot, in the area of Harbor Boulevard and El Camino Real on Friday afternoon.

Belmont Police are actively investigating this case and ask anyone who saw this suspect or has any information on this crime to call the Belmont Police at 650-595-7400 or the Belmont Police Crime Tip Line at 650-598-3000.
