Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry Expresses Grief, Relief Upon the Apprehension of Suspect Killer in the City of Davis

For immediate release:

DAVIS, CA- Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (D-Winters) today released the following statement:

“This has been a devastating week for Davis residents and the UC Davis Community. Two innocent people, David Henry Breau and Karim Abou Najim, lost their lives, and one woman was seriously injured in these senseless acts of violence. Nothing can undo these tragic losses, but David’s and Karim’s loved ones can now mourn.

“It is a great relief to me, as I know it is to my constituents in and around the City of Davis, that this horrific threat is over. But, I ask everyone to remember that the pain of fear and loss is still fresh and will not go away soon.  Our mission now is to help each other remember those we’ve lost, and restore peace, and compassion, to our community.

“I want to thank the Davis Police Department for their tireless work to apprehend this suspect.  And I want to take a special moment to recognize that this effort was successful in no small part because our neighbors and partners, including the Yolo County Sheriff, Sacramento Police, and Sheriff’s Departments, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation who all stepped up to help stop the nightmare we’ve endured this past week.”



Aguiar-Curry represents the 4th Assembly District, which includes all of Yolo, Napa, Colusa, and Lake Counties, and part of Sonoma County.
