A Sacramento man was arrested Wednesday in a carjacking of an occupied vehicle that left a Roseville family shaken this week.
Michael Anthony Milan, 33, was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and carjacking.
According to Roseville police, they received a call Monday from a resident in the greenbelt of a residential area near Sunrise Avenue and Douglas Boulevard about a suspicious person, who fled when officers arrived.
A short time later, spokeswoman Dee Dee Gunther said, police received a report that a family had been carjacked in the 1900 block of Sunrise Avenue. A man, they said, had jumped into their 2012 black Volkswagen Jetta while a woman and a young girl was inside.

The family was able to escape – shaken up, but unharmed – in the 300 block of North Sunrise Avenue after a few minutes. The man then drove the car out of the area.
Police have been looking for the assailant since then.
On Wednesday, detectives served a search warrant at a house in north Sacramento County and arrested Milan, Gunther said. He was booked into the Placer County Jail on multiple felonies: kidnapping during a carjacking and one count of carjacking. Milan remained in custody Thursday in lieu of $2.21 million bail.
