Santa Rosa police arrested a 34-year-old Santa Rosa man Thursday evening on suspicion of robbing the Chase Bank at 835 Fourth St. on April 5.
Darrick Alester Burch is suspected of entering the bank shortly before 11:18 a.m. and approaching a teller with a note demanding cash, police said. After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, police said, Burch fled.
Based on witness descriptions and bank surveillance photographs, police were able to identify Burch as the suspect. Through their investigation, police said they also identified two women, Nastajia Helene Edwards, 26, and Naustachia Olivia Earlene Green, 28, both of Santa Rosa, as suspected participants in the crime.
Police detectives said they believe Burch, Edwards and Green drove to downtown Santa Rosa and parked their car. Police said they suspect Burch left the vehicle and entered the bank, and that after robbing the bank he went back to the car and was driven away by Edwards and Green.
Burch was arrested at about 6 p.m. Thursday after an officer saw Burch walking on Mendocino Avenue, near Elliot Avenue. Burch was arrested after a brief chase, police said, and booked on suspicion of robbery.
Edwards and Green have also been arrested on suspicion of robbery.
