Surveillance video taken from the workshop captured an image of one of the suspect's faces, as well as a tattoo on the back of his right calf.
According to Sgt. Saul Jaeger, public information officer for the Mountain View Police Department, the men broke into the workshop on Nov. 25, between 7:32 a.m. and 7:52 a.m.
The men apparently used a pry tool to break a lock securing a door and then entered the workshop. They left with various tools, Jaeger said. The man captured on video appears to be Hispanic or Asian. He wore a dark, long-sleeved sweatshirt, black shorts and blue tennis shoes at the time.
The image of the man's tattoo is grainy, but it appears to be the Pittsburgh Steelers logo.
Sticks and stones
A group of young men were spotted hitting each other with sticks and throwing stones at one another in the 500 block of Walker Drive on Dec. 5, at around 4:20 p.m., according to police.
No one was arrested, but a car in the vicinity of the incident was damaged, probably by a rock, according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger, public information officer for the Mountain View Police Department.
Multiple witnesses reported seeing the scuffle, telling police that as many as 10 people were involved, Jaeger said. However, all involved fled the scene before police arrived. Officers canvassing the area after the incident stopped several juveniles, but none could be conclusively linked to the incident.
Man attacked outside bar
A San Mateo man told police that he and a friend were jumped by a group of 10 or more men outside of a downtown Mountain View bar early Sunday morning.
The 27-year-old victim suffered a broken tooth, small cuts and bruises after the fight, but was not seriously injured, said Mountain View Police Department spokeswoman Shino Tanaka. His friend was not hurt.
According to the police report, the two men were leaving Molly Magee's at about 1:45 a.m. on Dec. 8, when they were "attacked by 10 to 15 unknown Asian males" outside the bar on the 200 block of Castro Street.
The man reported the incident the following afternoon, at about 1 p.m.
Tanaka said the victim had "no idea" what the fight was about and told police he suspected his assailants were "looking to start something."
There was no additional description of the attackers.
Electronics stolen in burglary
Electronics, jewelry and money were stolen from a home in the 1500 block of Tyler Park Way on Dec. 8, police said.
The residents of the home, a 41-year-old man and a 36-year-old woman, were out out during the day and returned home to find that their home had been ransacked, according to Shino Tanaka, public information officer with the Mountain View Police Department.
The victims called the police and waited until officers arrived to clear the house before entering. "The residents did the right thing," Tanaka said. "Never put yourself at risk by going into your home if it's clear (an intruder) has been inside."
A television, jewelry, foreign currency, a laptop and an iPad were stolen, Tanaka said. It's believed that the burglar, or burglars, broke into the home through a rear garage window.
