Help Davis police nab their ‘most wanted’

By

An accused assailant and a woman suspected of elder abuse are among the Davis Police Department’s “most wanted” suspects.

They are two of nine people whose mugshots grace the Police Department’s website. Some of them have eluded arrest, while others were convicted and have since violated their probation. Their alleged crimes include identity theft, grand theft, battery, rape and other sex offenses.

They were chosen for the “most wanted” list based on the seriousness of their crimes, as well as the likelihood that they are still living in the area, Lt. Paul Doroshov said. Investigators are seeking that one tip that will land them in custody.

“It’s a tool to get the public’s help,” Doroshov said of the list, which was created in January 2010.

So far, the list has yielded one arrest — a suspect in a 2009 robbery whose relative recognized his picture on the police website and encouraged him to surrender. His alleged accomplice was arrested days later.

The Davis Enterprise featured several of these suspects last month and will highlight others in the coming weeks. To see the full list, visit the Police Department’s website, http://www.cityofdavis.org/police.

* Olatunji Raheem: A dispute over a parking space landed Raheem, who turned 26 on Saturday, on the “most wanted” list.

On the night of May 1, 2006, Raheem allegedly got into a confrontation with a UC Davis graduate student who took a parking space that Raheem wanted.

“This guy basically attacked (the victim) and beat him severely,” Doroshov said of the assault, which occurred at about midnight in the 500 block of I Street. “He broke several bones in the victim’s face.”

Police later arrested Raheem on suspicion of battery causing great bodily injury. But he failed to show up to court, which led to a warrant being issued for his arrest.

Raheem is described as an African-American male, 5-foot-10 and 187 pounds, with black hair, brown eyes and multiple arm tattoos. His last known address in Davis was 920 Cranbrook Court, but he also has ties to Oakland and other East Bay areas, Doroshov said.

* Tracie Jackson: Police describe Jackson as a onetime caregiver at Atria Covell Gardens retirement community who may have only cared for her patients’ bank accounts.

An investigation launched in May 2006 revealed that Jackson, now 26, bilked an 87-year-old woman out of $14,710, according to Doroshov.

It’s believed that Jackson obtained an ATM card in the elderly woman’s name, then “took the ATM card and used it at multiple locations in Davis and Woodland,” Doroshov said.

Police obtained a warrant for Jackson’s arrest on elder-abuse and fraud charges but have been unable to find her, Doroshov said. Her last known address in Davis was 3100 Fifth St., the Windmere Apartments.

Jackson is described as a light-skinned African-American female, 5-foot-6 and 140 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Here are the suspects previously featured in The Enterprise. View their pictures and descriptions on the Police Department website.

* Jose Medina-Martinez and Victor Hugo Sanchez: Medina-Martinez, 37, and Sanchez, 31, are wanted on warrants charging them with the July 15, 2006, rape of an 18-year-old woman at the J Street Apartments.

* Kenta Nagura: Nagura, 28, has a warrant for his arrest charging him with violating probation on a sex-offense conviction for having an “inappropriate relationship” with a 17-year-old Davis High School student.

Anyone with information about these suspects’ whereabouts is urged to call the Davis Police Department at (530) 747-5400. Do not attempt to contact or apprehend them on your own, Doroshov said, as they should be considered potentially dangerous.
