Police apprehend suspect following stabbing in area of Nord Avenue

Avoid the area of Nord Avenue from West Sacramento Avenue to Stewart Avenue as police investigate the situation
A heavy police presence is in the area of Nord Avenue. Taken by Callum Standish on May 2.

A suspect was arrested in connection to a stabbing at an apartment complex located at 729 Nord Ave. on Thursday, the Chico Police Department said.

CPD asked people to avoid the area of Nord Avenue from West Sacramento Avenue to Stewart Avenue as they took care of a stabbing incident.

Police came to the scene in response to a disturbance in the area and received information of a potential stabbing while en route, Chico police Lieutenant Ben Love said.

The suspect, the Chico Police Department press release stated, is Dangelo Daniels. Upon arriving on the scene, witnesses told CPD that Daniels was still inside an apartment.

After evacuating uninvolved citizens and setting up a perimeter, officers contacted Daniels through a loudspeaker. Daniels exited the building at around 9 p.m. without incident.

“Once we were in a position where we believed that the occupants would be safe, we began hailing the suspect to come out of the apartment,” Love said. “Once we started doing that, the suspect came out, complied with officer demands and was detained in handcuffs.”

The stabbing victim, who has not been identified, was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment and is expected to survive the incident, the press release said.

Daniels was arrested and booked into the Butte County Jail on the charge of assault with a deadly weapon, CPD said.

The investigation is still active and Chico PD encourages witnesses to call them at 530-897-4900 to provide information.

Chico State sent out its initial announcement via email, text and call to the campus community as a precautionary measure asking everyone in this area to shelter in place at around 7:45 p.m.

The university sent out a second shelter-in-place update advising people to avoid the area of the 700 block of Nord Avenue at around 9 p.m.
