A woman was walking in the parking lot of Big Lots on East 20th Street in Chico when a man on a bicycle rode past her allegedly yelling verbal obscenities just before 5 Monday afternoon. The woman started to shot video of him from her cell phone after fearing he would commit a crime. The man then ran towards her and reportedly swung a heavy bike lock chain at the victim striking the woman in the stomach and on the back of her head. According to a Chico Police Department press release, bystanders approached the suspect and he fled the scene. A few minutes later officers contacted the man, identified as 32-year-old Kyle Reeder at the Costco parking lot after reports that he was causing a disturbance. Police connected Reeder to the assault and he was arrested.
