Two men suspected of burglarizing an Orinda residence were detained by police after a brief foot chase Monday.
The incident was reported at around 9:30 a.m. when the men were allegedly spotted inside a residence on El Toyonal Road.
Officers from various Lamorinda agencies responded to the scene, establishing a perimeter and on hand as one of two men believed inside attempted to escape down a nearby hillside. That man, as yet unidentified, was taken into custody and treated at the scene for cuts sustained as he made his way through the underbrush.
The second man was detained a short time later and a short distance away.
We’ll have additional details when they become available.
