Campus beating investigated as hate crime

From page A2 | May 15, 2013 | 5 Comments

UC Davis police are investigating the Sunday night beating of a man who is believed to have been confronted because of his sexual orientation, according to a crime alert issued Tuesday by the UCD Police Department.

The bulletin says the victim and a friend were walking in the area of Levee and Brooks roads near Putah Creek at about 8:10 p.m. Sunday when two men in a burgundy Jeep sport-utility vehicle pulled up alongside them and began yelling anti-gay slurs. They then got out of the vehicle and assaulted the victim before fleeing in the Jeep down Brooks Road.

Police are investigating the incident as a hate crime. Information regarding the victim’s injuries, and whether he has any affiliation with the university, was not available Tuesday evening.
Both suspects were described as white males in their late teens to early 20s, about 5-foot-10 and 150 pounds, with light complexions, brown eyes and short straight brown hair.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call campus police at 530-752-1230.

    The hate just keeps surfacing in Davis which is becoming the hate capitol of California. How is the university contributing to this? Where is the enlightenment?

    You will never have a perfect world. Try for the best. Davis isn't perfect but it sure has a lot of great things.

    Firstly, I agree that the horrible acts of hate is intolerable anywhere and am saddened that this took place near the campus. However, I just want to clarify that the suspects and victims were not students of UC Davis, so please let's try not to point blame here. Even though they're not, the university is already alerted about this and have held gatherings, discussions, etc. to address it and contribute in helping resolve and/or prevent its occurrences. Nonetheless, it is a very serious issue affecting the city of Davis and I hope it doesn't happen again.

    We must continue to stand together against this type of behavior. Although this is disheatening so soon after Mikey's attack, I still belive our community is worthy of better and this just reinforces the danger of complacency and the need to dig deeper for the root to solutions.
