Police said they booked Ruben Rodriguez, 45, (pictured) into Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of robbery, assault on an officer, evading arrest and using a firearm in the commission of a felony. His bail is set at $1 million.
He is accused of holding up the US Bank, 3418 Broadway, about 10 a.m. Thursday. Officers quickly responded to the report of a robbery at the bank.
When police arrived, citizens pointed out a man they said was the robber. Rodriguez fled in a vehicle with police in pursuit.
He hit one vehicle and then backed into a police unit before driving down Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Rodriguez was eventually taken into custody.
Cash taken from the bank and a fake firearm used in the robbery were found in his vehicle, police said.
