In the wake of two home-invasion robberies in Portola Valley, deputies and detectives from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office will be on hand from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1, to meet residents of Portola Valley and Woodside at the Community Hall at 765 Portola Road.
The home-invasion robberies occurred June 12 and Oct. 13, and there was a residential burglary Oct. 18.
A week later, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9, the Town Council is hosting a meeting on town safety in the Community Hall.
Each of the two home-invasion robberies involved three armed men who confined the home's occupants while the robbery took place. The Oct. 13 incident left one of the residents with a cut to the side of his head, the only reported injury.
