Public Helps ID Suspected Robber; Police Obtain Warrant

A Southwick, Mass. man has been identified as the suspect in the Dec. 10 Windsor Federal Savings bank robbery.

Windsor police say they received several tips regarding the identity of the man suspected of robbing Poquonock Avenue's Windsor Federal Savings bank Tuesday afternoon  — tips "which proved instrumental in identifying the suspect."

Tips from the public helped Windsor police identify the suspect as 44-year-old David Bruhin of Southwick, Mass.

Police said Thursday morning Bruhin was located by members of the Hartford Police Department after a Hartford Department of Public Works employee found Bruhin suffering from self-inflicted wounds in his car.

Police also said they have obtained a warrant for Bruhin, who remains in protective custody at Hartford Hospital.

Police intend to charge him with second-degree robbery and fourth-degree larceny.

The warrant, police said, will be served upon Bruhin's release form Hartford Hospital.

On Tues., Dec. 10, Windsor police circulated a picture of Bruhin captured during the suspected robbery.

According to police, Bruhin entered the bank at 2:33 p.m. and handed the teller a note, which implied he was in possession of a weapon.

Bruhin reported left the bank with an undetermined amount of cash, police said, and fled the scene in an older model Crown Victoria police car.

Bruhin was found in the car Wednesday while trash was being collected in Hartford's Summit Street neighborhood.
