SAUSALITO — An intruder fled after a resident found him standing in her bedroom trying on clothing. He was subsequently arrested while in possession of property not belonging to him.
A mother with two children encountered the intruder when they returned home February 2. The intruder was friendly, and he introduced himself by his first name. The frightened woman fled with her kids from their Bulkley Avenue residence. She phoned her husband who phoned the police.
Before responding officers could arrive the intruder also fled. A man matching the description of the suspect was seen on Second Street by a parking enforcement officer who contacted a patrol officer.
The officer detained him outside of 201 South Street. The victim positively identified the suspect who was arrested at 6:01 p.m. He is Daniel L. Clark, a 34-year-old security guard who lives in Oakland. Clark was booked into Marin County Jail, where he was held custody in lieu of $50,000 bond.
Clark was booked on open charges for burglary, pending further investigation. At the time of his arrest, Clark had in his possession a dagger and burglary tools. He also had in his possession mail, checks and credit cards evidently stolen from various victims.
Earlier the same day, a prowler attempted to enter a home on the 100 block of South Street. He was unsuccessful, but a neighbor was able to take photographs of him. Turns out the photos are of Clark. Police are investigating if Clark is the same suspect involved with other recent prowling and trespassing incidents.
Clark has a violent history with nine prior arrests for domestic violence since 2014. He also has prior arrests for possession of a controlled substance and public intoxication.
