Suspects sought in campus robbery

By From page A2 | April 25, 2013

Two men were robbed of their wallets and cell phones early Sunday on the UC Davis campus, according to a crime alert bulletin issued this week.

According to the bulletin, the two victims were walking on California Avenue south of Russell Boulevard at about 12:45 a.m. when they were approached by two suspects, one of whom brandished a handgun. They fled south on California Avenue, possibly toward a red sedan, after taking the men’s property.

Both suspects were described as African-American men in their early 20s. The armed man was about 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds with a muscular build, wearing a dark hoodie and blue jeans. His accomplice was 6-foot-2 to 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, with a short scruffy beard, dark clothing and black shoes with white sides.

The car was a dirty red 4-door sedan in poor condition and appeared to be an early 2000s model, police said.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the UC Davis Police Department at 530-752-1230.
