CHICO, Calif. -

A Paradise man was arrested for allegedly stabbing another man in a Chico parkingĀ  Saturday morning.

Police got the call around 9:45 a.m. of a stabbing at Aegis Medical Systems on Rio Lindo Avenue.

While en route, officers learned that the suspect, identified as 19-year-old Sage Brown, was seen running into the rear parking lot of Ampla Health Care on Cohasset Road.

The business was locked down while officers searched the area. They were unable to locate Brown.

The 19-year-old victim told officers Brown appeared out of nowhere and started yelling at him before pulling out a knife and stabbing him in the abdomen.

The victim was taken to the hospital and treated for non-life threatening wounds before being released.

A short time later police received another tip that Brown was hiding underneath a vehicle in the parking lot of Ampla Health Care. The business was again locked down while they searched.

Brown was eventually found hiding on the roof of a neighboring business and arrested for assault with a deadly weapon.

Upon further investigation, officers learned that Brown did in fact know the victim but a reason for the alleged stabbing is unknown.
