On Tuesday, Dec. 10, at around 2:30 p.m., the Windsor Federal Savings Bank at 695 Poquonock Ave. in Windsor was robbed by a lone male.

The man entered the bank and handed the teller a note on 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.

As a result of the media coverage of this incident, the Windsor Police Department received several tips which proved instrumental in identifying the suspect.

On Wednesday, Dec. 11, the suspect, David Bruhin, 44 years of age, of Southwick, Mass., was located by the Hartford Police Department in the Summit Street neighborhood.

Bruhin was located by Hartford Department of Public Works employees while collecting trash in the area.  Bruhin was suffering from self-inflicted wounds and was transported to Hartford Hospital.

Windsor police detectives have been able to obtain a warrant for the arrest of Bruhin, which charges him with Robbery 2nd degree and Larceny 4th degree.  At the time of this press release, Bruhin was still at Hartford Hospital.  The warrant was to be served upon his release.
