RPD is asking for the public's help to identify a man wanted in connection with an assault on the Sacramento River Trail Saturday afternoon.

Whenever we are in Redding, we enjoy the shady walk along the Sacramento River, near where we always stay.

There was nothing to dislike. It was a beautiful walk. We spent some sit and reflect time on a bench, just enjoying the restorative vibe of the river.
