CHICO, Calif. - Two juveniles were arrested Saturday night and one suspect is still at large after an armed robbery near Ivy Street in downtown Chico, said the Chico Police Department.


According to Chico police, a call came in just before 10 p.m. about an armed robbery that had occurred near West Ninth and Ivy Streets.


There, officers found a man, who complained about his head being hit by a firearm, and that three unknown Hispanic men approached him and stole his cell phone, shoes and wallet.


One of the suspects was described as skinny with curly hair and brandished a firearm, the second man was seen with a heavy set and finally, the third suspect was just described as “young” by the victim.


All three of them then fled on foot southbound on Ivy Street, two were found a short time later by Officer Jack Ditty, according to Chico police.


Ditty found the two juvenile suspects, ordered them to the ground and waited for other officers to arrive and were later taken into custody without incident.


Police found a loaded Ruger .22 caliber handgun from one of the suspects and stolen items from the male victim, officials said.


The third suspect was not found by police, and there is no description of him either.


The two suspects were placed under arrest and charged with multiple charges and taken to Butte County Juvenile Hall.

Since they are minors, authorities will not release their mugshots or identities.

Tuesday was another beautiful day for northern California as a cold front began to bear down on the West Coast. We can expect increasing clouds late tonight, stronger breezes, and a chance for mountain rain and snow showers.
