(KTXL) — Davis Police announced they made an arrest in connection to a series of recent stabbings that shook the community. 

At a news conference on Thursday, Davis Police Chief Darren Pytel said 21-year-old Carlos Dominguez was arrested on two counts of homicide and one count of attempted homicide.

Dominguez, a former UC Davis student, is being accused of three separate stabbings that occured in span of five days. 

David Henry Breaux, 50, and Karim Abou Najm, 20, were both stabbed and killed while Kimberlee Guillory was attacked while sleeping in a tent. Guillory survived her injuries and is still recovering from her wounds, police said. 

Pytel said Dominguez was previously detained as a person of interest and a large hunting knife was found in a backpack he was wearing. The police chief said the knife “appeared to be consistent” with the first stabbing, but they still have to evaluate if the knife was used in the attacks. 

Here’s a map and timeline of the stabbings.
