CHICO, Calif. -

Chico police are looking for a man who they say is responsible for attacking and sexually abusing an 18-year-old woman early Monday morning.

Officers said the attack happened on the corner of West First Avenue and Arcadian Avenue around 4:30 a.m.

Sergeant Rob Merrifield of the Chico Police Department said that an 18-year-old woman was walking near that intersection when a man came out of nowhere and attacked her. Merrifield also said the woman was sexually assaulted as well.

The suspect then got away and the victim did not get a good look at him. So far, police have no leads on where this man could be.

They are asking for your help. If you have any additional information about this case, you're asked to give Chico police a call at 530-897-4911.
