A Palm Springs man suspected of entering a woman’s home and taking a laptop along with a bag of jewelry was behind bars today, records show.
William Eisenhower Jr., 45, was held in lieu of $150,000 bail following his arrest Saturday night for suspicion of first degree home invasion robbery and first degree burglary, according to jail records.
Dispatchers received a call at 6:22 p.m. from a woman in the 1400 block of Via Soledad about the shirtless man she caught in her living room holding the stolen items, Palm Springs Sgt. Mike Kovaleff said.
The woman struggled to get her property back, but the suspect broke free and ran from the home, Kovaleff said.
An officer searched the area about a block from where the alleged crime occurred and spotted Eisenhower — who matched the description the alleged victim gave officers — near Morongo and Palm Canyon roads, but he did not have the property on him, Kovaleff said.
The woman’s stolen laptop and jewelry was found stashed in some bushes near her home, Kovaleff said.
Eisenhower’s alleged victim identified him as the burglary suspect when officers brought her to the location where he was found, Kovaleff said.
