On 07/28/20, at approximately 2:30 am, a residential burglary occurred on Gresham Lane (off Selby Lane) in Atherton.  In summary, an unknown suspect(s) climbed through a master bedroom window to gain entry into the home.  The Homeowner reported waking up after hearing a noise coming from the master bathroom. The Homeowner noticed the master bedroom window had been opened, and the interior screen removed. The Homeowner then heard the master bathroom door close, at which point, the homeowner knocked/banged on the master bathroom door to scare away the suspect.  The suspect immediately exited the house through the bathroom window and fled in an unknown direction.  

Responding officers located a patio chair that had been moved and placed below the master bedroom window, and was determined to be the original location of entry by the suspect(s).  There is no suspect(s) description at this time.  The loss was a wallet and contents ($96). 

This burglary is currently under investigation. If you see or hear anything suspicious in your neighborhood, do not hesitate to call the Atherton Police Department main phone line (650) 688-6500, or 911 in an emergency.
