By From page A2 | May 14, 2013

Davis police are seeking three people who attempted to rob a party this weekend host of a laptop computer after threatening other guests with a knife.

Lt. Glenn Glasgow said the trio were at a party in the 200 block of Second Street when one of them was seen taking the laptop from a common area of the house. The owner of the laptop confronted and briefly detained the thief, who reportedly pulled out a pocket knife and threatened a gathering crowd before fleeing from the house empty-handed.

No injuries were reported.

Glasgow described the armed suspect as a Latino male with a shaved head, 22-26 years old, 5-foot-11 and 250 pounds, wearing black clothing. He was accompanied by a man and woman in their early 20s, also Latino and wearing black clothing. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Davis Police Department at 530-747-5400.
