The Palo Alto Police Department on Tuesday held a community meeting to address concerns over recent crimes, including a home invasion at an elderly couple's home.
Multiple suspects are reported in the Jan. 23 home invasion and police have released a sketch of the gunman. Investigators said the victims were not hurt.
Police at Tuesday's community meeting told residents they are working with other police agencies with recent home-invasion cases to try and locate the suspects.
Officers also warned residents of other crimes, including a recent spike in car break ins and a purse snatcher on a bicycle. Police urged the community to report all suspicious activity.
Residents are organizing, with some planning to enhance security at their homes and double-checking before answering the door.
