Robbery, pursuit in Central Davis lead to one arrest

By From page A3 | August 31, 2014

A Woodland man is in custody and two other men on the loose after a robbery and pursuit through Central Davis early Saturday morning.

The incident included a truck stolen out of Woodland, a robbery on Anderson Road and a pursuit at 50 to 60 miles per hour through Davis residential streets and onto the UC Davis campus.

Davis police Lt. Tom Waltz said it all began at 4:24 a.m. Saturday when Davis police attempted to stop a white Toyota Tacoma truck traveling southbound on Anderson Road for reckless driving.

Waltz said the driver took off and led officers on a pursuit at speeds of 50 to 60 miles per hour through a number of residential streets, including Villanova Drive, Beech Street, Mills Drive and Eureka Avenue.

The driver then crashed through the barriers that separate Eureka and College Park Drive and continued south across Russell Boulevard and onto Howard Way before continuing westward across the UC Davis campus.

During the pursuit, officers learned the three individuals in the truck were suspects in an armed robbery that had occurred minutes before the attempted traffic stop on Anderson.

Waltz said an individual who had been walking northbound on Anderson reported that a white truck with two or three Hispanic males had stopped in front of him, before one or more of them exited the truck, brandished a knife and took his wallet.

By then, officers also knew the truck they were pursuing had been reported stolen by the Woodland Police Department.

The pursuit finally ended on Orchard Park Drive on the UCD campus where the driver and one passenger fled the scene.

A second passenger, Woodland resident Nathen David Narbaiz, 28, was identified as a suspect in the robbery, Waltz said, and was arrested by Davis police on charges of robbery, vehicle theft and resisting arrest.

The driver and the other passenger who fled were described as Hispanic males ages 21 to 25, Waltz said.

Anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to call Davis police at 530-747-5400.
