Belmont PD Searching for Two Would-Be Burglars Scared Off By Homeowner

Police said it appears the resident startled the men and they fled Tuesday afternoon.

By Bay City News Service: 
Belmont police are searching for two men they said tried to break into a home in a downtown neighborhood Tuesday afternoon, and may have been casing other homes to burglarize.

According to Belmont police spokesperson Capt. Pat Halleran, at about 1:35 p.m., a resident called police to report that two men knocked on the front door of a home in the 1300 block of Sixth Avenue. When the resident did not answer, the men reportedly went to the back door and began jiggling the handle.

Police said it appears the resident startled the men and they fled.

The suspects are described as black men in their 20s, with thin, muscular builds. One man was wearing a purple hoodie, the other a green hoodie, and both were wearing backpacks, police said.

A silver sedan was seen parked on the street near the home, police said.

Halleran said the men match the description of suspects in a burglary conducted in the White Oaks neighborhood of San Carlos last week. A silver sedan was also seen near the site of that burglary.

Police are asking residents in the downtown area of Belmont to check video surveillance systems for images of these suspects.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call Belmont police at (650) 595-7400.
