    A boy is recovering after he was assaulted by an adult in Chico this evening.

    Police received a call about a suspicious man in the area near East Avenue and North Avenue just before 6 p.m. this evening.

    Few details of the actual assault have been released at this time, but reportedly the man tried to offer the boy drugs for sale.
