Portola Valley: Deputies arrest alleged prowler


A 25-year-old Sunnyvale man was arrested early Friday morning after being spotted near some homes in Portola Valley where authorities had received reports of a prowler earlier in the week, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

At about 1:30 a.m., sheriff's deputies spotted Daniel Silverman on the campus of Woodside Priory School, located at 302 Portola Road.

Silverman allegedly approached nearby housing units where the reports of prowlers had been made. When the deputies tried to contact Silverman, he fled, according to the sheriff's office.

More deputies were called to the scene, and Silverman was eventually spotted hiding in a vehicle on Georgia Lane near the school.

He was arrested and booked in county jail in Redwood City on suspicion of prowling, trespassing and resisting arrest, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has any additional information about the case is encouraged to call sheriff's Sgt. Bryan Raffaelli at (650) 363-4058.
