This fugitive apparently forgot what it meant to be on the run.

A man wanted in connection with a bank robbery in Maryland was arrested in South San Francisco on Saturday after police said he returned to the scene of his latest crime.

About 10:30 a.m., police said, 27-year-old Eric Evans carjacked a man who was unloading groceries from the trunk of his vehicle at his home on Mayfair Avenue.

But instead of fleeing the state — as he had apparently done following the Maryland bank heist — Evans allegedly returned to the victim’s home about 2:30 p.m. the same day. Police arrested him and found the stolen car about two blocks away.

During the initial carjacking, police said, Evans assaulted the victim. The victim reportedly attempted to stop the theft, but was assaulted again.

The victim called police, who learned that the suspect matched the description of a man who had had a run-in with police earlier in the day in an unrelated incident. When Evans was arrested outside the victim’s home, the victim and a witness positively identified him, police said.

The unemployed Evans was booked into San Mateo County Jail.
