SLO police looking for suspect in two home burglaries

San Luis Obispo police are looking for a man possibly related to two home burglaries early Saturday.

The first incident occurred about 2:30 a.m. when a cab driver dropped off a woman passenger in the 900 block of Peach Street. As he watched her going into her home, he saw a man approach her outside and walk her into the residence, closing the door behind him, according to police.

The cab driver heard the woman scream and ran to the door, pounding on it. He briefly came face to face with the suspect before the suspect fled, police said.

The suspect was described as a white male adult, 5 feet 10 inches tall, wearing a ball cap with a CHP logo and “possibly mute.” The woman was not assaulted, police said.

The second incident happened a little over an hour late at a home about a mile away. A man in that home in the 100 block of Verde Drive reported finding a strange man in his home at about 3:30 a.m. who then left and drove away in a light-colored or tan sedan.

That intruder was described as a tall white man with a large build, curly red or brown hair, wearing an orange zip-up jacket, tan or beige corduroy pants and a CHP-logo ball cap.
