    REDDING, Calif. -

    Redding police said crime along the Sacramento River Trail has increased due to the growing transient population in Redding.

    Sacramento River Trail crime has increased over the last four years. According to police logs, there were 147 crimes reported along the Sacramento River Trail in 2010. In 2014, there were 222 crimes reported in the same area.

    Police logs also state cases of sexual assault, burglary and rape along the trails in 2014.

    Police stated they advise runners and walkers on the trail to only keep one ear bud in when listening to music to be more alert. They also said residents should avoid the trails at night and in the early morning before the sun comes up.

    "Be very aware of your surroundings," said Officer Gary Meadows with the Redding Police Department. "Maybe even carry some personal weapons, like pepper spray."

    Police said if you are attacked, be loud and try to attract attention of fellow trail-goers who might be able to help.

    "You can yell, kick, scream," added Meadows. "An attacker doesn't want to be around someone that is making noise and drawing attention."

    Two people are facing charges after a Wednesday night shooting in Chico.

    Witnesses told police one group of men fired a handgun at another group at about 7:30 p.m. near the Walgreen's store on Nord Avenue. The victims left the area before officers arrived.

    Three suspects were stopped while walking along the 1100 block of Nord Avenue a short time later.

    A small amount of drugs were found nearby, but police could not link them to any of the suspects.

    Crime at the Safeway on Pine Street in Redding has nearly doubled in the last four years.

    Redding police said the growing transient population in the area is to blame.

    "There is a large transient population in the park. People get hungry and thirsty they're going to come to a place like this," said Sergeant Ron Icely of the Redding Police Department.

    Police said they have advised Safeway officials to lock up their alcohol stock. They believe it would decrease the crime and shoplifting problems in the area.

    Icely said these safety measures are more important than ever.

    "Things have changed here in Redding, unfortunately," he added. "Precautions need to be taken. Businesses need to take these precautions."
