FYI, 100 Block of Melville is not in Professorville. It's on the other (south) side of Embarcadero. That's OLD PALO ALTO.

Old Palo Alto ain't what it used to be. In the old days, the most you had to fear was being egged by the Paly students.

You're absolutely right. We've changed the headline to reflect your astute correction. Thanks for your help!

I agree that this story does not make sense. Was his car searched?

To Anonymous, in another neighborhood...

You're right. Old Palo Alto isn't what it used to be. Now the cheapest house in Old PA, a two bedroom teardown, just a few houses in from Alma, costs $2M. And that's only if you have all cash.

"He attacked the man with a 3-inch pocket knife."

Isn't it time to register pocket knives?

Just think if he was able to get his hands on a gun.
