NEWS-LEDGER — AUG 22, 2012 –
A Yolo County Jury has convicted 32-year-old Vincent Sloan of West Sacramento of robbing the owner of a Woodland check cashing business while the owner was on her way home from work on April 10. The jury also convicted Sloan of hit-and-run.
After work, the victim was depositing checks at the Wells Fargo ATM in Woodland before going home, reports the D.A.’s office. The victim, who was with her 8-year-old son, parked in the driveway of her Woodland home and was walking to her door when Sloan, wearing dark clothing and a mask, demanded her bank bag.
Sloan slapped her and struggled with her to get the bag while she screamed for help. The victim’s husband heard his wife at the front door and ran to help her. Sloan ran to a waiting car where an accomplice drove him away. Sloan and his accomplice fled south on I-5 and crashed off the embankment and struck another car near the Main Street onramp in Woodland.
Sloan’s DNA was found on the inside of the car that fled from the robbery. The car was also registered to Sloan.
Sloan faces up to 6 years in state prison. The Honorable Stephen Mock presided over the jury trial and will sentence Sloan on September 4.
