The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office said it apprehended a suspect in an attempted residential burglary in unincorporated Redwood City Monday morning. The victim said she confronted a man with her firearm as he was trying to break into her home in the 700 block of 7th Avenue around 11:20 a.m., Lt. Ray Lunny of the Sheriff's Office said.
She said that the suspect fled southbound on Spring Street, and she gave a description to the deputies at the scene, Lunny said.
Deputy Antonio Villalobos, one of those who responded to the call, said he remembered seeing a person matching the suspect's description earlier that morning near Marsh Manor Shopping Center, Lunny said.
Villalobos returned to the area and found the suspect in the 3700 block of Florence Street, Lunny said.
Raymond Garcia, 27, of Redwood City was detained by the deputies and was later identified by the victim as the man who tried to burglarize her home, Lunny said.
Garcia was arrested for attempted residential burglary and parole hold and was booked into the San Mateo County Jail, Lunny said.
