An Abington Township police officer was hospitalized and an alleged bank robber was in custody Friday after a car chase that began in Jenkintown and "wound all over Philadelphia," police said.
Police identified the suspect as Aaron K.M. Thomas, 47, of West Philadelphia.
Thomas was awaiting arraignment Friday on robbery and related offenses, according to Abington Township Deputy Police Chief John Livingood.
Livingood said that about 11:15 a.m. a man went into the PNC Bank at 123 Old York Road, tossed a plastic bag on the teller's counter, and said: "Fill it up."
No threats were made, no note was shown, and no bank employees were injured, Livingood said.
