In the past couple of weeks, officers have responded to several calls in north Atherton involving suspicious circumstances, thefts or attempted thefts from unlocked vehicles and residential burglaries.
At 3:00 a.m. in the morning on Thursday, Aug. 29, an unknown suspect attempted entry into a residence on Cebalo Lane off Selby in Atherton. The suspect broke a window and was scared off by the resident. The attached photo of the suspect was captured on a surveillance camera.
The suspect appears to be a light skinned male wearing a colored jacket over dark colored hooded sweatshirt, baseball cap and dark pants. The suspect was seen riding a bicycle. If you have any information regarding the suspect contact the Atherton Police Department.
