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.
