FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A man was arrested again by police after allegedly robbing a bank for the second time in one week.

Madera police responded to the Bank of America on Tuesday morning for a robbery alarm.

Officers arrived on scene just as Salinas was speeding away in his car.

He led officers on a high-speed chase into Fresno, where he was eventually taken into custody.
