The man accused of robbing a Windsor bank on Tuesday is in police custody after he was discovered suffering from self-inflicted injuries in a car in Hartford, police said.

A man  walked into the Windsor Federal Savings bank at 695 Poquonock Avenue and stole money around 2:30 p.m. Dec. 10, and the suspected robber was found in a car parked on Summit Avenue in Hartford Wednesday morning, police said.

Police have identified the man as David Bruhin, 44, of Southwick, Massachusetts. 

A public works employee spotted him during trash collection, according to police.

Bruhin was suffering from self-inflicted wounds and appeared to be suicidal. He was taken to Hartford Hospital and placed in protective custody there.

Windsor police detectives have obtained a warrant for Bruhin's arrest, charging him with second-degree robbery and fourth-degree larceny. 

Bruhin is at Hartford Hospital and the warrant will be served when he is released.

On Tuesday, police said the robber entered the bank and handed the teller a note implying that he had a weapon.

He took an unknown amount of money and fled in a car with a Massachusetts plate. Police said the getaway car resembled an older-model Crown Victoria or Dodge Charger, which can be confusing to members of the public because it looks like a police car.
