Authorities on Saturday confirmed the identity of the man stabbed to death inside a Pleasanton apartment in an apparent robbery attempt that escalated to homicide earlier in the week.

The Alameda County Coroner's Bureau identified the victim as 32-year-old Edevion White, a Tennessee native who was living in the apartment where killed, according to Pleasanton police Lt. Erik Silacci.

Police reported that White was found unresponsive in the unit at the Park Hacienda Apartments complex on Owens Drive at around 10:30 a.m. last Monday after police were called to the scene following a call about two people with ski masks running from the apartment.

Silacci previously stated that police believe a confrontation occurred between the victim and assailants and that he was stabbed inside the apartment after they tried to rob him. "As previously released, we believe the assailants were known to the victim, this was an isolated incident, and there is no threat to the community," Silacci reiterated on Saturday.

The yet-unidentified culprits remain at-large, according to police -- who encourage anyone with information about the assailants or the case overall to contact the Pleasanton Police Department tip line at 925-931-5107.
