Two people were killed in a series of stabbings near a university in California, and a suspect in the case has been captured. KCRA-TV reported on Wednesday that a person of unknown identity was arrested in Davis, California, close to the campus of the University of California, Davis.
Two people were killed in a stabbing incident close to the UC Davis campus, one of whom was a student there. On Monday, a 64-year-old homeless lady was reportedly stabbed multiple times through her tent, leaving her in severe condition.
On April 27th, the first one happened. Several hours later, the body of 50-year-old David Breaux was discovered. Abou Najm, 20, was returning home from an undergraduate honors ceremony on April 29 when he was fatally stabbed.
The city and university issued a joint statement warning residents and students not to walk home alone at night and instead to stick together.
“We will continue the work and remain vigilant until these crimes have been resolved. In the meantime, we all must stay cautious and take precautions,” the statement by Davis Mayor Will Arnold and University Chancellor Gary May said.
