A Signal Hill woman woke at 6:15 a.m. June 3 to find a man stuffing her belongings into a backpack, demanding money and threatening to kill her, Signal Hill police said in an announcement Friday seeking the public’s help in finding the burglar.
The department released a photo of the car the man was driving, which was caught on surveillance as he was leaving: it was a silver four-door sedan, possibly late model VW Jetta with a California license plate that begins with a “7.”
Police said the burglar was black, about 30 years old, 5-foot-5 with an average build, and a shaved head. He was clean shaven, wearing a white tank top with red lettering and black pants.
The crime took place in the 3300 block of Cerritos Avenue.
Anyone who has information should call Detective Andrew Serna at 562-989-7215 or email [email protected]
