San Bruno police are warning residents to be on the look out for any suspicious people lurking in city neighborhoods after one resident reported nearly falling victim to a door-knock burglary.

Police said that at around 6 p.m. Tuesday, a woman in the 100 block of Acacia Avenue, reported an attempted break-in to her home.

The woman told police that she ignored the front door knocks from an unknown female and minutes later heard noise coming from the side of the home. When she went to investigate the sounds, she said there was a man standing inside her home, according to police. When the male suspect saw the resident, he apparently fled on foot.

The male suspect is described as being in his mid-20s and about 5 foot 7 inches tall. He reportedly had brown hair and wore dark clothing.

The female suspect was also in her mid-20s with brown hair and bangs that spiked on the side fringe, police said.

Police are warning residents to call police to report any suspicious activity. Police said that most residential burglaries occur when the home is believed to be empty.

Anyone with information about the attempted burglary is asked to contact San Bruno police at (650) 616-7100.
