RE: Residential Robbery/Burglary Ukiah Police Department Case Number #13-0270
On 2/2/2013 at about 8:45 PM, the Ukiah Police Department received a call from an elderly female resident in the 800 Block Waugh Lane. The caller reported that a white male adult, about 40 years old with a thin build, had entered their second story residence through their rear patio door. The suspect put on some of her clothing, including her white skirt from her bedroom, and then fought with the caller’s husband when the suspect came into their living room, then fled out their front door with her purse and clothing. The elderly couple was not hurt. The area was checked with the assistance of other local law enforcement agencies but the suspect was not located.
On 2/2/2013 at about 11:00 PM, approximately two hours later, the Ukiah Police Department received a call from a female reporting a white male adult wearing a hooded sweatshirt was trying to get into the rear patio door of her residence in the 700 Block of Village Circle. Officers responded and located the suspect behind the caller’s residence. The suspect saw the officer’s and ran eastbound through the apartment complex, jumping the fence onto the railroad tracks with officers in foot pursuit. The suspect jumped another fence of a residence in the 800 block of Waugh Lane where UPD Officer’s captured and arrested him.
The elderly victim from the first call identified the suspect as being the person in her residence and who robbed her of her purse and clothing. The suspect was identified as
