Police released a sketch and a photo of the man they say tied up the 66-year-old woman after she surprised him while he was burglarizing her Edinburgh Street home around noon Monday.
The suspect was armed with a handgun.
The suspect is described as a Latino man about 30 years old standing about 5-foot-10 with medium-length hair with a wave at the end of it, according to Norris. Police have released a photo of the suspect using the victim’s ATM card. He is wearing a beanie and a dark jacket zipped up and partially covering his face.
The woman, who was left with minor injuries during the incident, was able to break free and call police. Police are asking for the public’s help in producing any information that might lead to the arrest of the suspect.
Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact San Mateo police at (650) 522-7700.
