Police arrested a suspected serial bank robber at gunpoint Friday in a Salt Lake City grocery store.
Michael Alexander Bacon, 45, was arrested about 4:50 p.m. inside the Brickyard Harmon's grocery store, at 3270 S. 1300 East, according to the Salt Lake City Detective Cody Lougy. Police located Bacon when an officer responded to an unrelated call in the neighborhood and happened to notice someone matching Bacon's description nearby. Bacon then took off running and the officer pursued.
Bacon led the officer on a foot chase through the neighborhood. At one point, the officer caught up to Bacon and hit him with a baton. The blow failed to stop Bacon, Lougy said, so the officer fired a Taser. That also didn't stop Bacon, who was protected by his heavy clothing.
