According to campus police, the suspect, a 17-year-old white male, was arrested at his Sacramento home on the evening of Jan 19.

Police said that at approximately 5:40 p.m., the 17-year-old pulled a knife on the victim at the campus light rail station while the victim was restrained by another suspect. A third suspect then proceeded to steal the victim’s wallet before all the suspects, two of who had bicycles, fled southbound on 24th Street.

The victim reported the crime immediately, but the suspects were nowhere to be found. Police said the victim was unharmed.

The first of the two fugitive suspects was reported by the victim as a white male, approximately 5 foot, 8 inches, wearing a red hat, red sweater and white shoes. The other suspect, of unknown ethnicity and unknown age, was reported to have been approximately 5 foot, 10 inches and wearing a red and white jacket at the time of the incident.

Police are urging anyone with information that may lead to the apprehension of the other two suspects to call the LRPD at 916-558-2221.
