San Luis Obispo police are searching for a man who allegedly walked an intoxicated woman into her home and then, an hour later, appeared inside another person’s house.
Shortly after 2:30 a.m. Saturday, a taxi driver dropped off the woman in the 900 block of Peach Street. A man then came up to the woman and walked her into her home, according to a police department new release.
At the time, the cab driver was watching to make sure the intoxicated female got home. The driver reported hearing the woman scream after the man entered her house.
The taxi driver then ran to the door, pounded on it and briefly came face to face with the burglar. The suspect then fled the area.
Police say the burglar apparently did not assault the woman.
Shortly after 3:30 a.m., a resident in the 100 block of Verde Drive found a man in his home. The suspect drove off after he was spotted.
Witnesses of the Peach Street burglary described the suspect as a 5 feet 10 inches tall white male who was wearing a “CHP” logo and was possibly mute.
