Nu Alpha Kappa (NAK), a Latino-based fraternity, was robbed at gun point around 2:15 a.m. on Sunday. One suspect, Daniel Chavez, is in custody. A second suspect – a Hispanic male in his mid-20s, of medium build and a tattoo of “678” on his neck – is still at large. Neither are affiliated with UC Davis.
The house, located at 333 Parkway Circle, hosted a party on Saturday night. When asked to leave, one of the suspects pulled out a gun and robbed four males. Two of the victims were UC Davis students, according to UC Davis police. The suspects then stole a car, crashed it into the wall of a daycare center and threw a gun into a playground.
Members of NAK were unable to comment.
Down the street, one apartment in Russell Park and two apartments in The Colleges at La Rue were burglarized. Electronics including televisions were stolen, though residents were not home at the time.
On Feb. 16, a dorm in Emerson Hall was broken into. A resident awoke to a rattling sound and saw two unknown suspects standing in the common room. The suspects fled.
It is unknown whether the incidents are related.
