A 33-year-old man is a suspect in the aborted burglary of a home outside Morgan Hill early Saturday where a resident pushed an intruder out of a window, according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office. Steven Hather, of Morgan Hill, was arrested and booked into the county jail Saturday on suspicion of burglary, sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Kurtis Stenderup said.
At 2:42 a.m. Saturday, a female living in a home in the 500 block of West Edmundson Avenue in an unincorporated county area adjacent to Morgan Hill reported being awakened by a noise of someone taking off the screen on her bedroom window, Stenderup said. The male suspect removed the screen, opened the window, pushed some blinds aside and began to climb through the window, deputies said. He was halfway inside the home when he saw the female victim and said to her, “Who else is here right now?” according to Stenderup.
The victim then shoved the suspect out of the home and closed the window, deputies said. The suspect turned and fled south toward La Crosse Drive in a neighborhood in Morgan Hill, Stenderup said. After deputies dispatched to the scene began searching for the suspect, a citizen called Morgan Hill police to report seeing a suspicious person, who matched Hather’s description, on La Crosse Drive, according to deputies. Morgan Hill police captured the suspect, the burglary victim identified Hather as the man who entered her home and deputies placed him under arrest, Stenderup said.
