A 29-year-old San Francisco woman was arrested after she was found allegedly trying to burglarize a South San Francisco home, according to police.
Jeannette Tayac was hiding in the kitchen of a home in the 300 block of Gardenside Avenue at about 9:25 p.m. when the woman who lived there returned, police said.
Tayac allegedly tried to run from the home through the front door, but the resident detained her, according to police.
The resident’s father was waiting in a car outside the house and came to his daughter’s aid, police said. The two struggled with Tayac until police arrived.
Tayac was arrested at the house and said she was accompanied by a man who fled before the resident came home, according to police.
She was out on bail on a felony charge at the time of the incident.
The resident and her father suffered minor injuries but declined medical attention, police said.
Tayac was arrested on suspicion of residential burglary and booked in the Redwood City jail on $75,000 bail.
