West Sacramento man convicted in Woodland robbery

A West Sacramento man has been convicted of robbing the owner of a Woodland check cashing business in April.

A jury on Monday also convicted 32-year-old Vincent Sloan of hit and run, according to a Yolo County District Attorney's Office news release.

On April 10, the victim deposited checks at the Wells Fargo ATM in Woodland before going home. The woman, with her 8-year-old son, then parked in the driveway of her Woodland home and was walking to her door when Sloan, wearing dark clothing and a mask, demanded her bank bag, authorities said. Sloan slapped the woman and struggled with her to get the bag as she screamed for help.

The woman's husband heard his wife at the front door and ran to help her.

Sloan ran to a waiting car, and an accomplice drove him away. The two fled south on Interstate 5 and crashed off an embankment, striking another car near the Main Street onramp in Woodland, authorities said.

Officials said Sloan's DNA was found on the inside of the car, which also was registered to Sloan.

Sloan is to be sentenced Sept. 4 by Yolo Superior Court Judge Stephen Mock.
