At approximately 5:40 p.m. on Feb. 4, two males vandalizing Chico State property were caught by University Police, who alerted the Chico Police Department.

After the suspects realized that they had been seen, they fled down Chestnut Street toward West 3rd Street. One of the men proceeded down Chestnut Street, while the other turned down West 3rd Street, running across the front yard of the Alpha Phi sorority house.

“A guy ran across our grass and threw something into our bushes. One guy kept running down Chestnut Street and got away, but police chased the other guy down West 3rd Street and handcuffed him,” Hailey Willingham, an eyewitness and member of Alpha Phi said. She was in the middle of a recruitment event during the scene.

Officer Davison, of University Police Department, who participated in the chase, later confirmed that the object thrown into the bushes of Alpha Phi was a can of spray paint.
