After a 90-minute foot chase, Palo Alto police on Sunday arrested a teen who allegedly committed an attempted robbery.
The attempted robbery stems back to Thursday morning, when at around 9:30 a.m., a housekeeper saw a man attempting to come through the window of a home she was cleaning.
She alerted the homeowner, a man in his forties, who rushed downstairs to investigate.
According to police, the man saw the suspect, identified as 19-year-old Daniel Williams, hiding in his backyard. When he was spotted by the homeowner, he ran away on foot.
Police caught up with him walking on Woodland Avenue at West Bayshore Road in East Palo Alto about ten minutes later. When police approached Williams, he ran. According to police, witnesses reported seeing the suspect hopping over fences in an attempt to escape.
Eventually, police were able to catch up with Williams shortly after 11 a.m. and he was arrested and charged with felony residential burglary and resisting arrest.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call (650) 484-8984 to connect with the Palo Alto Police Department, who are investigating to see if William has ties to other burglaries in the area.
