Surveillance video shows the man-bashing the front door windows once, then coming back and attacking the glass two more times.
Country Squyres Antiques owner, Kathy Squyres said she believes the man used a hatchet.

“You feel helpless with this type of behavior,” Sqyuers said. “There’s so much intrusion from not just people breaking things…but coming into your business and intimidating customers and there’s a lot of people who say they won’t go downtown…but the problem is not just downtown.”

Other local businesses want to keep downtown Chico safe.

Volunteer at Christian Science Reading Room, Carol Raner said the most important thing is they want to keep the downtown area open and safe.

“I’m just sorry that this is happening. When people start responding like some sort of awfulness going on in that person’s life..that’s the thing I’m sad for too, it's ridiculous that they should have to deal with something so terrible,” Raner said.

Squyres had her window repaired and ready before she opened.

She said she hopes sit-lie comes back into play and police are more present.
