CHICO, Calif. -

Chico Police say a man was stabbed in the parking lot of the Dutch Bros. Coffee location on East Park Ave. around 3 p.m. Monday.

Authorities said  25-year-old Jeremy Rivera and  32-year-old Trina Baltazar-Dollar spent all day in the parking lot when 42-year-old John Kenyon walked through.   Kenyon somehow got into a verbal alteration with the Rivera and Baltazar-Dollar. That's when police said the altercation escalated to a stabbing.

Rivera stabbed the victim in the chest near the upper torso area.  Baltazar-Dollar then hit Kenyon with a "cheap metal broom handle" as described by police.

Kenyon was driven to the hospital and was rushed into surgery.  Police said he suffered from a collapsed lung.

Police arrested both Rivera and Baltazar-Dollar after a witness pointed them out.
