Windsor Police Wednesday took into custody David Bruhin, 44, of Southwick, Mass., the suspect in an armed robbery at the Windsor Federal Savings Bank on Poquonock Avenue on Tuesday afternoon.

He was located in the Summit Street neighborhood in Hartford by a city public works employee. Bruhin was suffering from self-inflicted wounds and was transported to Hartford Hospital.

Upon leaving the hospital, Bruhin will be arrested and charged with second-degree robbery and fourth-degree larceny.

According to police, Bruhin entered the bank around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday and handed the teller a note in which he implied that he had a weapon. He fled the bank with an undetermined amount of cash.

Witnesses described seeing the man get into an older model Ford Crown Victoria police car and leave the area in an unknown direction.
