Persistent burglar tries to break into woman’s home twice 

Police are hunting a persistent burglar who has twice tried to bust into a woman’s home near St. Mary’s Park in Bernal Heights.

In both attempted burglaries, the suspect tried to break in when the resident was home. The home is on Arnold Street.

The latest attempt was Sunday. At 9:45 a.m., the woman called cops saying she heard noises outside her home and saw the man trying to pry open her window in the backyard. She hit the home alarm, and he hopped the fence and fled down a pathway, police said.

The suspect was described as a light-skinned black or Hispanic man in his late 30s, just over 6 feet tall and weighing around 180 pounds, police said. He has a distinctive afro-style haircut and was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, black pants and a small dark backpack, police said.

Anyone with information on the burglary suspect is encouraged to call police on the anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444.
