Chico State University Police arrested four suspects for the assault of Rajpal Singh, a Chico State student and Josimar Arroyo, according to a Chico Police Department press release.

Singh and Arroyo were attacked around midnight on the corner of Fourth and Ivy Streets on Sunday.

Witnesses say that the suspects demanded alcohol from the two men, and when Arroyo and Singh refused, the four men began punching and kicking the victims.

“Singh received a stab wound to the left side of his face,” said the report.

University Police stopped the suspects’ pickup truck, removed the occupants from the vehicle and arrested the four men after witnesses and the victims identified them.

Raoul S. Puente, Julian C. Palacios, Luis Flores-Rojas and Efrain Mata were all charged with attempted robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and battery with serious injury.
