Suspect attacks woman after breaking into her home


San Mateo County sheriff's deputies are seeking a man who allegedly broke into a woman's house and attacked her early Monday morning (Jan. 18) near Redwood City.

At 12:21 a.m., deputies responded to a call about a residential burglary in the 3300 block of Spring Street in unincorporated San Mateo County.

The woman had arrived home and went to the back door to let her animals out of the house. When she turned around, she noticed a man inside the home, deputies said.

The man approached her and pushed her up against a wall, then grabbed her by the throat and applied pressure. When the victim yelled for help, a family member came to her aid. The man then fled on foot, deputies said.

Deputies searched the area but could not find the man, who is described as white or Hispanic and between the ages of 20 to 25. He has short brown hair, brown eyes, is about 5 feet 6 inches tall with a slim build, and was wearing a gray and burgundy plaid shirt, blue jeans and a burgundy baseball hat. The suspect had numerous tattoos on both of his forearms.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact sheriff's detectives at (650) 363-4055 or (650) 363-4064.
