Portola Valley today: In wake of home invasions, deputies meet with residents


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.

We are very grateful to have the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office detectives, deputies, and officers provide detailed updates and counsel to concerned families. The heinous shootings in Des Moines serve as a reminder of the risks that our police men and women take on our behalf. Thank you.
