5:00 am
chp gave us a new incident on the side of the road. >> right now, i guess we're going to give you a look at the weather. christina will talk about the rain in the forecast, and we also want to give you a live look at the bay bridge. the lights flickering to inspire you as we creep closer to friday. we are at friday eve also known as thursday, november 21st. this is "today in the bay." >> it's 5:00. good morning. thanks for joining us. i'm jon kelley. >> i'm laura garcia-cannon. we begin with that breaking news out of the south bay where reports of a burglary bring s.w.a.t. team response to a home in santa clara. it's happening on the 2200 block of crocker way, that's right by lawrence expressway just past el camino real. chase cain was first on the scene. looks like officers have that under control now.
5:01 am
>> reporter: they sure do, laura. they have two people in custody. they believe they are the only two people who were involved in this burglary. we also talked to a captain and he says the reason that the s.w.a.t. team was called out here was because they thought there were people still in the house. you see actually some of the swat and police vehicles leaving the scene. apparently what happened is a neighbor called police when they believed that a couple guys were breaking into one of their neighbor's homes. police got out here, saw some people running, heard running in the area. of course they pursued those two people. they sent a canine after the two people who were running from them in this neighborhood. that canine helped catch these two. one of the two men running was bitten by that canine. we're told it's nothing serious but that is why they called an ambulance out here because that person did have minor injuries. two people in custody.
5:02 am
it seems certainly burglary would be among that. apparent there there have been several other thefts in the neighborhood. he wouldn't elaborate but bottom line there have been a few thefts in the area of crocker way. so the question today for detectives will be if it is these two men who are responsible for all of these thefts. that's the hope for the people in the neighborhood. the scene wrapping up. the reason the s.w.a.t. team was called out they thought people were still in the house. they were not. that is the latest. chase cain, "today in the bay." >> thanks so much. >> we're learning more about that 85-year-old palo alto man reportedly detained over north korea while visiting the country. he is a korean war net ran on his way back when his trip took a turn for the worse. marla has reaction from his family and the state department. >> the son of 85-year-old
