DALY CITY (CBS SF) — A 17-year-old Daly City boy was booked into the county’s youth services center on Wednesday after confessing to a series of offenses against a 93-year-old man, police said.
Officers found the boy at 7:36 p.m. at 18th and Mission streets in San Francisco after he invaded the man’s home on Sunday and took the victim’s wallet with cash inside, identification and bus pass.
The boy entered the home in the first block of Brooklawn Avenue at about 2:30 p.m. The home is across the street from Majorie Tobias Elementary School.
The man was in the kitchen getting ready to watch TV when the power went out, police said.
The man called PG&E, which told him to check the circuit breakers. The man waited 30 minutes and went downstairs with a cane into the garage to check the breakers when a person hit him on the head with a glass object.
The man dropped his cane and fell forward. The boy held him up by the shirt and put tape across his mouth, according to police.
The boy then dragged the man up the stairs into a bedroom and demanded money repeatedly while ransacking the home.
The man was able to call police when he didn’t hear the boy in the home any longer. The man suffered multiple cuts to his scalp and abrasions to his back, police said.
The boy was arrested on suspicion of three counts of burglary, robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping, false imprisonment, elder abuse, theft from an elder, domestic battery and for violating probation.
