CRIME ALERT: Attempted Burglary Near Rancho San Diego Elementary

Crime Alert Rancho San Diego Community Network 92019

From a local resident:

“Everyone who lives near Rancho San Diego Elementary, be cautious as today my home was almost robbed. This morning at around 9:40AM my husband was home when a young African American male came and began knocking the door and ringing our doorbell. At first my husband checked through the peephole, thought it was an advertisement, and just left the door. All of a sudden he heard the window begin to shake in the living room. When he went back there were three African American males taking off the screen of our window and trying to open it. When my husband opened the blinds, they were startled and began cursing, then ran off down Calle Albara. He didn’t get a clear view of them but here were the descriptions he gave me:

-The one knocking on the door was a male of around 25-35 years old, he was around 6′ tall and had on a hoodie
-There was a younger boy around 15-16 years old had curly hair with a black cap on
-The third man was further away, around 5’8″-5’10” and also had on a hoodie.

Thankfully my husband was home so they ran off but I just wanted to let everyone know to keep a watch out for any suspicious activity. If anyone saw anything or has any information, please comment below or private message me as we’re filing a report.”

This was on Calle Naranja… The resident didn’t want to divulge their full address, but it was on the part of the street closest to the elementary school.

UPDATE:I actually wanted to update because I just came home and asked my husband what happened in detail: he said that first there was only one man, the 25-35 year old, knocking and ringing the doorbell asking if anyone was home. Then, he left, but a few moments later he came and began knocking the door again this time with the 15-16 year old and the 5’8″-5’10” man was standing by our garage. All of a sudden my husband saw they were touching the window screen. He said they were so quick, when he saw them touching the screen he stuck his head into our living room which has a window right next to the door and didn’t see anything. When he looked back through the peephole he saw that one of the men were sticking their heads through the window and when he went back to the living room the man had his head through our window. When my husband yelled, the man looked at him, said “Oh $%^&” and they all took off. Glad they were scared off but my husband was really surprised by how quick they were, he said it took them only a few seconds to take off the screen and open the window.”

    Couple of weeks ago around 9AM I was going out & there was someone fitting your descriptions in front of our driveway, he hesitated then walked on to neighbors, I got in my car & thought strange for if he was selling something he didn’t ask me. He was standing on their porch when another person came around the corner calling him & they took off toward Eucalipto and I drove off the opposite way.

    Our car got broken into last year around this time. We live on that street. After our car was broken into, our neighbors car was broken into and then our neighbors home was burglarized.

    • Wow, I’m so sorry to hear that!! There has been a lot of break-ins recently 🙁 I’m hoping that with the “Coffee with the Community” event coming up on June, we can have some good conversations with the local sheriffs and make some progress with preventing this. Thank you for letting us know – an informed community also helps us prevent crime!
