Chico, Calif. --

Chico Police are searching for a man suspected of assaulted two people in Chico City Plaza early Tuesday Morning. 

Police say it happened in the area of 401 Broadway Street in Downtown Chico at 3:08 a.m. Tuesday. When officers arrived to the scene, they contacted two victims. The first victim said the suspect hit him with an alcohol bottle without provocation. The second victim said he tried to intervene, and was pushed to the ground, kicked and then hit with a set of bicycle handbars on his head and arm.

As expected, we had much quieter weather around northern California on Wednesday with plenty of sunshine, much weaker wind, and a wide range of temperatures. Thursday will be similar, but much more active weather is coming.
