Statement Following Davis Police Department Briefing

UC Davis issued the following statement today (May 4):

UC Davis learned that the city of Davis police, UC Davis police and the FBI have identified and arrested a suspect in all three stabbing incidents. The person has been identified as Carlos Reales Dominguez. Reales Dominguez was in his third year at UC Davis until April 25, 2023, when he was separated for academic reasons. 

We are partnering with law enforcement to provide access to any and all information as part of the investigation. We are providing support to faculty, staff and students who may have interacted with him. As we learn more and are able to provide updates that do not interfere with the ongoing investigation, we will do so. 

We urge the community not to rush to conclusions or speculate until all facts are known. We are grateful for law enforcement’s quick response and resolution during an extremely difficult period for the city and campus.
