According to a press release sent out by Chico State, Saturday before 2 a.m., Chico State student, Raelynn Vincent, was walking from her boyfriend’s home when she was physically assaulted near Third and Ivy Streets.

The suspect, a male driving a dark red Volkswagen Passat with a Florida license plate, got out of the vehicle and punched Vincent in the jaw after making offensive and abusive remarks.

Vincent’s boyfriend and his roommate were watching from their front porch and ran to help. They attempted to chase the suspect with no success.

The victim has since undergone surgery which will require her jaw to be wired closed for five to six weeks, followed with physical rehabilitation that could take a year to be completed.

Vincent’s family is interested in locating and identifying the suspect and encouraged the community to reach out with any information by calling the Chico Police Department at 897-4900 with the case number 15-1371.
