Menlo Park man chases burglar


A Menlo Park man chased a burglar from his home Friday, Nov. 13, though he wasn't able to recover the antique doormats the man stole.

The resident, 45, found a man in the hallway of his home in the 400 block of Bay Road around noon. He chased him out through a side door in the garage and about a block down the sidewalk, before the man cut into yards and jumped fences, according to police.

The burglar made off with two antique doormats valued at $2,500 to $3,000 each, and a box of checks, police said.

He is described as a white male in his 20s with a long pony tail. He was wearing a baseball cap, long shorts and a beige shirt.

The man entered the house by breaking a lock on the garage door, police said.

No one was reported injured during the incident, and the resident reported that he did not see a weapon on the man.
