Police in San Mateo on Tuesday arrested a man in connection with the attempted robbery of a bicycle. Isaak Torres Figueroa, 23, was arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery, according to the San Mateo Police Department. Officers responded Tuesday at 11:49 a.m. to a report of a physical fight involving two men in the parking lot of Hassett Ace Hardware at 545 Fist Ave. Police said a suspect, later identified as Figueroa, attempted to steal a bicycle from the victim, and a struggle ensued.
Figueroa fled the scene, but a witness directed officers to a “suspicious man” hiding in a vehicle, and Figueroa was taken into custody without incident, police said. The victim suffered minor injuries in the attempted robbery.
