An East Palo Alto man was arrested on suspicion of burglarizing a home in unincorporated Redwood City on Thursday afternoon, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. A resident of a home in the 3500 block of Bay Road returned home at around 2:50 p.m. and found a man hiding in the master bedroom closet. The resident sprayed the burglar with bear spray and the suspect dove out of a window, climbed over the backyard fence, and hid, sheriff’s officials said. Sheriff’s deputies responded and found the alleged burglar, 30-year-old Edgar Aguiniga, and arrested him on suspicion of burglary.
