Police Respond to Reports of Two Men Lurking at Burlingame Schools, Parks

Following two apparent sightings of "suspicious" men in town, Burlingame officials want the public to know they have looked into the reports, and don't believe them to be threats at this time.

On Thursday, the The Burlingame Police Department issued the following:

The following is in response to community concern over two recent incidents in Burlingame  involving a suspicious male subject at local schools/parks:

On March 9th, at approximately 4:30pm, a suspicious male subject was seen in the area of the Burlingame Golf Center (250 Anza Blvd).  No criminal activity was witnessed, and at this point in time, it is not believed  any criminal activity took place or was attempted.  The subject was never located but was described as a white male adult; 55-62 years of age; slender; blue or green eyes; having a mustache and blonde/brown hair; wearing jeans and a navy blue t-shirt with a turtle on the back of it.

On March 12th, at approximately 3:00 pm, a suspicious male subject was seen in the area of Franklin School (2835 Trousdale Dr).  No criminal activity was witnessed, and at this point in time, it is not believed  any criminal activity took place or was attempted.  The subject was never located but was described as a white male adult; 60 years of age; worn appearance (possibly homeless); balding with otherwise long reddish or bleached hair; light (possibly blue) eyes; ruddy complexion; wearing a dark grey hooded jacket and carrying some type of red (possibly 49ers) backpack or lunch sack.

The Burlingame Police Department investigated both incidents given the information we received, and based on our investigation, it does not appear as if these incidents are related, that either subject is a registered sex offender/pedophile, or that any crime took place.

The Burlingame Police Department would like to stress to our citizens that if you witness a crime taking place, a suspicious subject or incident taking place, or a subject that makes you feel uneasy (like in the incidents described above), you should immediately report the incident to the police by dialing 9-1-1.  Please do not wait until you get home, make telephone calls to friends/family or e-mail/blog post.  A call to the police department should be the first call you make.

Bugs me that they said he's Hispanic. From that picture above, he might be White. Don't assume
