Man arrested after showing gun

REDDING – As people were enjoying their lunchtime break at Safeway on Pine Street, or perhaps Buz’s Crab Shack next door, a Safeway employee noticed two men arguing in front of the supermarket at about 12:21 pm. According to a Redding Police press release, the employee saw one of the two pull out a handgun and point it at the other man. The man with the gun then left the scene on a white beach cruiser bike.

The Safeway employee reported the incident to police immediately, and Corporal Phil Eoff soon saw someone matching the description. He stopped the man on the bike on Parkview near Leland Avenue just a few blocks away, and just past the Redding Public Library, and South City Park and the Kiwanis Club ball fields.

Noyes was found on his bike on Parkview Avenue.
