Help Davis police nab their ‘most wanted’

By
February 24, 2011 |

Jose Medina-Martinez is one of the Davis Police Department's "most wanted." Along with Victor Sanchez, Medina-Martinez is wanted on a warrant charging him with the July 15, 2006, rape of an 18-year-old woman at the J Street Apartments.

Last month, local authorities arrested two suspects in a 2009 robbery after a relative recognized one man’s picture on the Davis Police Department’s list of 10 “most wanted” subjects.

Cristobol Sanchez turned himself in after the relative persuaded him to surrender. His alleged accomplice, Nathan Apodaca, was arrested days later.

Today, nine remain on the “most wanted” list. Some have eluded arrest, while others were convicted and have since violated their probation. Their alleged crimes include identity theft, grand theft, battery, elder abuse, rape and other sex offenses.

They were chosen for the Police Department’s “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.

The Davis Enterprise will feature these “most wanted” subjects over the next several weeks. To see the full list, visit the Police Department’s website, http://www.cityofdavis.org/police.

Jose Medina-Martinez, 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.

Both suspects and the alleged victim were acquaintances, all living at the apartment complex at the time. On that July night, while her boyfriend was out of town, the woman “went over to (the suspects’ apartment) to watch a movie, became intoxicated, and alleges she was sexually assaulted by both suspects,” police said.

Officers’ attempts to make contact with the two men at their apartment and their workplaces were unsuccessful, leading police to believe they had left town, Doroshov said. Eventually, the case was turned over to the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office, which issued arrest warrants charging Medina-Martinez and Sanchez with rape and false imprisonment.

Both men are described as Latino males. Medina-Martinez is 5-foot-7, 220 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. Sanchez is 5-foot-7, 200 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Kenta Nagura

Doroshov said Nagura was working as a tutor for special-needs students at Davis High School when his actions in February 2007 got him in trouble.

“He befriended the victim, a 17-year-old female, and had an inappropriate sexual relationship with her that included oral copulation,” Doroshov said.

The case went through the court process, and at some point Nagura was placed on probation. Doroshov said he later violated his probation terms, resulting in the current no-bail arrest warrant.

Nagura is described as an Asian male, 28 years old, standing 5-foot-7 and weighing 125 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

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.
