A suspect in as many as five armed robberies in the Redwood City area is believed to be holed up in a home in North Fair Oaks and is refusing to come out, a San Mateo County sheriff’s spokesman said. The activity is occurring near the Caltrain tracks, and Caltrain service has been affected. Miguel Angel Caballero, 30, has been tracked to a home on William Avenue near Third Avenue, where police and sheriff’s deputies have been staked out since about 9 a.m., Lt. Larry Schumaker said. As of 2 p.m., sheriff’s deputies were continuing to try to get Caballero to come out, Schumaker said.
Caballero is the prime suspect in five armed robberies that have occurred at businesses in Redwood City and North Fair Oaks since Aug. 7. Caltrain service is only operating on the northbound tracks through the North Fair Oaks area. Passengers boarding trains at the Menlo Park, Redwood City, San Carlos and Belmont stations are all being instructed to board on the northbound platforms. One northbound train is half an hour behind schedule, and additional delays are expected, Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said.
