San Luis Obispo County sheriff's deputies on Saturday arrested a man suspected of carrying out a burglary and prowling through Nipomo in two separate incidents early Friday morning.

According to a news release from the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office, at approximately 3:30 a.m. Friday, sheriff's deputies responded to a report of a man who had forced his way into a home on the 200 block of North Burton Street in Nipomo and grabbed a woman inside. The man left the home before deputies arrived.

Sheriff's deputies later responded to a burglary in progress at 5:45 a.m. Friday on the 100 block of East Tefft Street in Nipomo. According to reports, a man had entered a home and grabbed a woman inside. Before law enforcement arrived, the man had already fled the scene.

Officials say the two women in both cases were not hurt.

On 1 a.m. Saturday, detectives with the Sheriff's Special Operations Unit found the man suspected of both incidents at a family member's home in Nipomo.

According to another news release from the sheriff's office, authorities identified the suspect as 25-year-old Kammeron Anderson of Nipomo.

Law enforcement arrested Anderson on suspicion of residential burglary with additional charges pending and booked him into the San Luis Obispo County Jail.

Sheriff's deputies said there are no additional suspects in this case.

"The Sheriff's Office would like to thank the public for providing tips and assistance which led to the apprehension of Anderson," said deputies in the news release.
