Davis police have announced an arrest in connection with the recent string of deadly stabbings in the city.
The suspect, who was already in custody, has reportedly confessed to at least one of the murders during questioning.
Law enforcement sources confirm that the suspect had a knife, believed to be the murder weapon, and police obtained a warrant to test his DNA.
The suspect is believed to have ridden off with one of the victim’s bikes following one of the stabbings, and police are attempting to match his DNA to potentially DNA found on the bike.
Meanwhile, police have been searching a home in Davis, though it is unclear if this search is connected to the stabbings.
The area around the house has been cordoned off, and law enforcement officials in white suits have been seen taking evidence and photographs.
Neighbors have described the police presence in the area as unusual, given the relatively low crime rate in Davis.
