CPD Investigates Two Alleged Attacks in Bidwell Park

The Chico Police Department is probing two incidents in Bidwell Park, where a man allegedly tried to grab a child. Both incidents happened around South Park Drive in November. In one case, a 12 year old girl reported jogging in the park, when a man allegedly chased her and tried to grab her. Police say the girl kept running and got the attention of a bicyclist, causing the man to flee. In the latest incident, which happened Friday, a 13 year old boy told police he was riding a bike and stopped when a man asked him a question. The man allegedly grabbed the child and started to pull him into the bushes. The boy was able to break free and get away. Police are asking anyone with information to contact investigators and to report suspicious people in the park.
