A man suspected of robbing a Yuba City bank Monday morning was arrested by police trying to board a Greyhound bus to New York hours after the alleged robbery.
Yuba City police responded to Umpqua Bank on Colusa Highway just after 9 a.m. Monday when they received notification a robbery had just occurred.
Bank employees said the robber handed the teller a note which read, in part, "Give me $10,000 dollars or I will kill you". The note was signed John Chapman.
The man then fled the area, and employees were able to positively identify the suspect as John Chapman.
Yuba City detectives found and arrested Chapman around 5:30 p.m. in Marysville, where he was waiting to board a Greyhound bus to New York.
