CHICO, Calif. - A 21-year-old man was arrested Wednesday in connection to a robbery and stabbing near the former Graduate restaurant in Chico.

Police arrived at the scene around 5:40 a.m. on Wednesday and found a victim suffering from a stab wound.

The victim told officers that a man approached him near W. 7th Street and Normal Avenue, demanding his bike. When the victim refused, he said the suspect hit him in the head with a water bottle. The victim and the suspect then both pulled out knives and got into a fight. 

The victim received a single stab wound to his abdomen. 

Officers said the suspect, who was later identified as 21-year-old Anthony McEnespy-Mendoza, was found near W. 7th and Wall Streets with the victim's bike. McEnespy-Mendoza had a single stab wound to his hand and was transported to the hospital along with the victim. Both men are expected to survive. 

McEnespy-Mendoza was booked into Butte County jail on charges of robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
