CHICO, Calif. - A man was arrested today in Chico after police say he pulled out a knife and threatened another man.

The incident happened around 10 a.m. at the bus stop on Mangrove Avenue near the Safeway Shopping Center.

The victim in the attempted attack, who preferred to remain anonymous, said he was walking to the bus stop after getting a haircut when a man pulled out a knife.

"It wasn't a switchblade," he said. "He pulls it out and uncovers the blade and points it at me and I just walk away. I don't know what I did to piss him off but he must have been having a bad day." 

He said he called police after walking away.

Officers arrived about 20 minutes later and arrested the suspect who was still at the bus stop.

The victim was not injured.
