Police have identified a Citrus Heights bank robbery suspect who allegedly led police on a car chase Friday from Roseville to Auburn.
Michael Jon Coman, 41, of Auburn, robbed the Eldorado Savings Bank on Lichen Drive around 4:30 p.m. Friday, according to Citrus Heights police. He entered the bank and presented a note saying he was armed and demanded money, police said. Witnesses did not report seeing a weapon. Coman allegedly left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.
A manhunt began. A Roseville police officer spotted Coman and his vehicle on Interstate 80 near Highway 65 a short time later. Police followed him to Auburn, using spike strips to stop his car. Coman abandoned his car and ran into a ravine, police said, where he was caught, thanks largely to a Roseville police K-9.
Coman suffered minor injuries from a K-9 dog bite, police said. He was booked into the Sacramento County jail on robbery and other charges.
