Incidents at two Redding bars prompt police response
Redding police responded to two bars early Sunday morning after receiving reports of disturbances just minutes apart.
The first report came in at 2:03 a.m. at Johnny's Cathouse located at 1730 California Street. Officers responded to a fight in progress. When they arrived, they found Deven Sauve, 28, unconscious in the middle of California Street. He was bleeding profusely from the head and face, police said.
All on-duty police resources responded to the location due to the large crowd at the scene. Sauve was taken to Mercy Medical Center where he was last listed in good condition.
No suspect is in custody, and the case remains under investigation.
Just 19 minutes after the call at Johnny's, officers responded to the 501 Night Club at 1244 California Street after receiving reports of a vandalism.
When they arrived, witnesses said Christen Allen-Clark, 33, of Redding, had thrown a rock through the front window and yelled out anti-homosexual statements.
Officers found Allen-Clark about 500 feet from the business being detained by two patrons.
He was arrested for vandalism and a hate crime after being transported to Shasta Regional Medical Center for injuries received while he was being placed under citizen's arrest.
