A Sacramento man was arrested Thursday in South San Francisco on suspicion of multiple attempted burglaries, police said.

Officers responded to a call of an attempted burglary at a residence on Arlington Drive in the Winston Manor Park neighborhood of South San Francisco.

The 63-year-old resident told officers that he went outside to investigate noises at the rear of his home, where he found a man attempting to enter the residence via a rear bathroom window. 

The resident called police after confronting the suspect, who fled the scene. 

Officers and detectives quickly found and arrested a suspect a short distance from the residence.

The suspect was identified as 33-year-old Sacramento resident Damian Goodwin. 

Officers and detectives found that Goodwin was on probation for weapons violations, was in possession of a device used to ingest illegal narcotics, and had several hours earlier attempted to burglarize another residence. 

In his alleged previous attempted burglary, the suspect had entered the residence of a 90-year-old man, but fled after being confronted by the elderly man's caretaker. 

Goodwin was arrested and booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility in Redwood City.
