After Robbery, Hot Pursuit Through Central Davis Nets One Arrest.
One Woodland man is currently in custody and two others remain at large after an incident that involved a truck stolen out of Woodland, a robbery on Anderson Road in West Davis, and hot pursuit by Davis PD of the truck through residential neighborhoods around 4 am on August 30.
All this started when a Davis PD patrol officers tried to stop a white Toyota Tacoma pickup truck that was rolling recklessly southbound on Anderson Road. Davis PD spokesman Lieutenant Tom Waltz said the truck took off. Officers gave chase through quiet nearby residential streets including Villanova Drive, Beech Street, Mills Drive and Eureka Avenue. Then the truck’s driver crashed though barriers that separate Eureka Avenue from College Park Drive and roared south across Russell Boulevard and onto the UC Davis campus.
While in pursuit, the Davis officers learned that the three occupants of the truck were suspects in an armed robbery that had taken place minutes previously on Anderson Road. A pedestrian who’d been walking along Anderson Road later told police the three had stopped the truck, brandished a knife and took his wallet. Woodland police also informed the pursuing Davis officers that the Toyota truck itself had been stolen as well.
The chase ended in Orchard Park Apartments on the UC Davis campus. Two of the suspects successfully fled on foot. Woodland resident Nathen David Narbaiz, 28, was taken into custody on charges of robbery, vehicle theft and resisting arrest.
The driver and the other passenger who fled were described as Hispanic males ages 21 to 25, Waltz said. Anyone who knows anything about the incident is asked to call Davis police at 530-747-5400.
