Pleasant Hill Woman Thwarts Burglary But Suspects Get Away
PLEASANT HILL (BCN) – A Pleasant Hill woman appears to have stopped two men from breaking into her neighbor’s house Tuesday morning, but had her cell phone stolen in the process, police said.
Police received a 911 call at about 10:20 a.m., but the caller didn’t say anything to the dispatcher, police said.
When officers went to check on the caller, a woman told them that she had seen two men knock on her neighbor’s door in the 2000 block of Elinora Drive and then jump over the neighbor’s fence.
The woman confronted the men and one clenched his fist at her, she told police. She told the men she was going to call 911 and one of the men grabbed her cell phone, police said.
The trespassers, described as black men in their 20s, then got into a silver or gray Pontiac Grand Am with a California license plate number similar to JKH655, police said.
As the men drove away, they threw the woman’s phone out of their car.
Police found the phone and searched the area for the suspects, but didn’t find them.
While they were checking the neighbor’s house, officers found that a window screen had been partially removed.
The homeowners were not home at the time.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Police Department’s investigations division at (925) 288-4630.
