CHICO, Calif. - Chico Police responded to the report of a robbery at Kay Jewelers in the Chico Mall around 8:55 p.m. on Saturday. 

The suspect in the robbery is suspected of stealing a gold necklace and pepper-spraying an employee.

According to an employee, a white or Hispanic man wearing a black San Francisco Giants baseball cap with a white brim and a black petticoat-style jacket requested to see the necklace, and when it was handed to him, he tried to flee from the store.

The employee told police that they tried to grab the suspect, who then pepper-sprayed them before making an exit.

It is believed the suspect ran out the main doors on the south side of the Chico Mall and may have gotten into a black or blue BMW sedan that was parked in front of the entrance.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the Chico Police Department at (530) 897-4910.
