On September 21 at 6:00 p.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department will hold a community meeting at the Carlsbad Senior Center located at 799 Pine Avenue. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss a prowler that has been reported in the north-coastal area of Carlsbad and seek the community’s help in identifying the suspect.
The prowler, described as a Hispanic or Caucasian male, has been reportedly looking into windows while residents sleep. In at least two instances, the suspect entered a residence through an unsecured window. When he encountered the residents, he fled the house.
The Police Department is taking a multi-faceted approach to catching the prowler that includes crime scene investigations, crime analysis, extra patrols, and developing a composite sketch of the suspect (see attached).
The community plays an important role in helping the Police Department solve these crimes. First, by helping the Police Department identify the suspect shown in the composite sketch. Next, by being the eyes and ears of your neighborhood, and reporting suspicious activity and crime, 24/7, when it is taking place. Finally, by securing doors and windows that might provide access. Home security information can be found on the City of Carlsbad’s website here https://goo.gl/jcma7i.
If you can identify the suspect in the composite sketch, please call the Police Department at 760-931-2197.
