Police Release Sketch of Residential Burglar

Post Date:03/09/2017 3:51 PM

Contact: Captain Patrick Halleran, Public Information Officer - Belmont Police & Fire Departments (650) 595-7430

Belmont Police are releasing an artist's composite sketch of a suspect from an attempted residential burglary, that occurred earlier this week, in a effort to identify him.  The suspect had attempted to enter a side door to a home on Marsten Av and fled when he was confronted by the resident.

On Tuesday 3/7/17, shortly before noon, a resident in the 4100 blk of Marsten Av was home and heard a noise. The resident investigated and found a male suspect attempting to open the side door to the home.  The suspect fled when confronted by the resident, who immediately ran inside to call 9-1-1.  Belmont PD units responded and conducted an extensive search of the neighborhood and adjacent canyon area, but the suspect was not found.

The suspect is described as a white male adult, between 30-40 years of age, thin build, unkempt, with short “messed up” salt & pepper hair and a mustache.  He was wearing a purple shirt with unknown white lettering on the front, dark jacket and jeans.  No suspect vehicle was seen or heard.

Belmont PD investigators are actively pursuing leads in this case and are asking anyone, with additional information or security camera video possibly relating this incident, to contact them at 650-595-7400 or
