CPD Probes Attack that may not be Considered a “Hate Crime”

Chico Police are probing a weekend attack that left one man injured. The Chico Police Chief told the Enterprise-Record that although the assault may have followed a hate incident, it’s probably not a hate crime. The 30 year old victim was with two men who were dressed in women’s clothes downtown early Saturday morning. He claims he was hit in the head and fell down after a group of young men allegedly made sexual and racial comments. After falling, one of the suspects reportedly put his foot on the victims neck.  Chief Mike Maloney says the police report doesn’t mention the victim getting punched. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Chico PD.
