71-year-old Man Chases Burglars Out of His House in S. Concord

A 71-year-old man chased two burglars out of his Concord home on Thursday morning, police said.

The man came back to his home in the 1600 block of Nuala Street at about 11:10 a.m. and found the two suspects inside, police said.

He chased them out but fell as he was running, suffering abrasions to his face and leg, police said.

A family member took the man to a hospital as a precaution.

One suspect was described as a white man standing 5 feet 6 inches tall with a thin build and dark hair.

The second suspect was a white or Hispanic man standing 5 feet 8 inches tall with a medium build and wearing a dark shirt and khaki pants, police said.

Investigators believe the burglary might be related to two people acting suspiciously about a block away at 10:44 a.m.

A resident in the 900 block of Duar Drive said that the suspects knocked on the door and when the resident answered, they acted suspiciously and named someone else who lived there, police said.

One of those suspects was described as a white or light-skinned Hispanic man between 18 and 20 years old with a small frame, a black shirt and jeans.

Police are asking anyone with information about the case to contact Concord police at 925-671-3030.

I’m glad the guy is going to be ok
And clean just because I have tattoos does not mean I’m a crook having tattoos does not mean I’m going to end up in jail

Oh my goodness! How scary! My grandchildren live on that street and I can’t imagine what would have happened if they came home to find those robbers in their home. I hope someone knows something and does the right thing and turns them in.

14 Steve H. April 25, 2014 at 12:27 PM

ATTABOY, homeowner! I hope it doesn’t hurt too much, and for very long.

19 Mimi (original) April 25, 2014 at 7:01 PM

Really?? Likely they were tattooed? I’m a 61 yr old white conservative woman and I’m tattooed, does that make ME a criminal!?! Join the 21st century.

20 Wow #2 April 26, 2014 at 1:03 AM

Ok first of all not everyone with tattoos is bad or if you live on section 8 are you a bad person. I have tattoos and am on section 8. I have never been arrested I have a college degree. It’s ignorant people like CLEAN . Who make things worse. But unfortunately because of my cancer I can not work so before you judge us people with tattoos or people that live on section 8 why dnt you just SHUT YOUR MOUTH. Too bad your parents never taught you manners like if you don’t have anything nice to say, say nothing at all.

61 with a tattoo, let me guess, those melting clocks by Salvador Dali?

I saw this story on the news and cfheered that this guy stood up for himself. They say the geek that had his arms full of this man’s stuff dropped the stuff he was carrying, so the man was able to keep the gun the geeks tried to steal. I’m looking forward to the day when these jerks will be caught and taken off our streets for a while. Too much of this is going on. It is so disgusting.
