HILLSBOROUGH (CBS SF) — Police were on the lookout for a would-be burglar who fled a Hillsborough home this morning after a resident spotted him and screamed.

Hillsborough police Sgt. Nelson Corteway said a man wearing a black hoodie with the hood tied around his face was spotted inside a home in the 600 block of West Santa Inez Avenue around 9 a.m.

The resident screamed, scaring away the suspect, then called 911, police said.

A witness told police that a suspect matching that description was seen running west on West Santa Inez Avenue.

Anyone with information on the crime is asked to contact the Hillsborough Police Department at (650) 375-7470.
