A man reported to Arden Fair Mall security about 8 p.m. Tuesday that an armed robber tried to hold him up in the parking lot. Police were notified and mall security provided a good description of the suspected robber's vehicle.
Police arriving to the call made a stop of the vehicle away from the mall parking lot.
Police said Jordan E. Urban, 22, (pictured) then fled from the car.
Urban was brought into custody with the assistance of a police dog. A discarded, loaded handgun was booked into evidence.
Urban was booked into Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of attempted robbery, carrying a loaded firearm with intent to commit a felony and giving false identification to police.
