The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office released a community warning after a man was allegedly caught peeping into a San Carlos home Tuesday night.

At about 11:20 pm, deputies were called to the 2300 block of Howard Avenue about a “suspicious person looking through the window of a residence,” the sheriff’s office said.

“A passerby confronted the suspect after which they were involved in a minor scuffle,” officials said. The suspect was last seen fleeing toward Dayton Avenue.

A search of the area failed to find the suspect. The passerby was not injured, officials said.

The suspect was described as a white or Hispanic man, about 5-feet-8, 180-pounds, with dark brown hair, comb-over style haircut shaved on the sides. He was last seen wearing a white button-down shirt, black dress pants and black dress shoes.
