University of California, Davis, police are seeking two men in connection with what is believed to be a hate-motivated incident that occurred Sunday night on the UC Davis Quad.
Two people were approached in the quad by two men who yelled abusive comments about the victims' race and sexual orientation, according to a university news release. The men pushed and grabbed the victims before running away and leaving the area on bicycles.
One of the men is described as white, 18 or 19 years old, with a muscular build and brown medium-length hair, wearing a red polo shirt, blue jeans and a hat. The other was described as Latino, 18 or 19 years old, with a heavy build and brown hair, wearing a white T-shirt and khaki shorts.
Officials said the incident was reported to UC Davis police late Monday and is being investigated as a hate crime. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Police Department at (530) 752-1727, or the anonymous crime tip line, (530) 752-9944.
