Suspect Seen During South End Burglary

A resident in the 2500 block of Lee Avenue returned home yesterday to find an unknown male Asian on their doorstep, and the front door to the home wide open.  The male suspect immediately walked toward a car parked on the street and told the resident, in Korean, that he was a friend of the resident's son.  The suspect then fled toward Longden Avenue in the vehicle.  The resident entered the home and found it to be ransacked.  The crime occurred at about 1:10 p.m.

The suspect apparently turned off the power at the home circuit breakers and then forced open a rear screen, entering through a window.  The loss included a laptop computer and a watch at time of report.

The suspect was described as a male Asian, about 40 years old, 5'-06"/thin build, brown hair and eyes, wearing green hospital scrubs.  The suspect spoke in Korean to the victim.  The suspect vehicle was a 4-door, black Nissan Maxima.

Anyone with information is asked to call Arcadia Police Detectives at 626-574-5160.  You can also submit crime tips and information via text, phone, or web to LA Regional Crime Stoppers, 800-222-TIPS (8477), or by clicking on the "Submit a Tip" button on the APD Blog side bar.
