Arrest Warrant Issued for Exchange Student That Allegedly Breaks Into Steph Curry's Atherton Home

An exchange student from China is wanted for arrest because officials say he broke into the home of Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry in San Mateo County in October.

The District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe’s office informed CBS News Bay Area that 18-year-old Sheng Gao would appear in Redwood City minor court on Thursday. Gao did not show up to court, so the judge issued a bench warrant for his arrest. The bail amount for the warrant was set at $500.

Police say Gao took a bus from his home in Cupertino to Atherton on October 15 to look for the four-time NBA champion’s house in order to get an autograph.

Gao talked to a woman in the wealthy Peninsula neighborhood, who showed him where Curry’s house was. He walked up to the gate around 5:50 p.m., pushed the “call” and “ring” buttons on the buzzer, and the gate opened.

The DA’s office says Gao then walked onto the land and into the house through the front door, which was not locked. A nanny soon came up to the suspect and asked what he was doing at the house. The suspect told her that he needed Curry’s “signature.”

The Palo Alto Daily Post was the first to report on the break-in. They said that the nanny saw Gao on a security camera and confronted him when he came into the living room.

The man left, and the babysitter called the cops. After that, he was arrested when police saw him walking on El Camino Real, according to investigators. Gao was then given a ticket and told to show up in court on December 7.

Authorities say that Steph and his wife, Ayesha Curry, were not at home at the time of the event, but that their children were. The house had nothing taken from it.
