HANOVER, Pa. (AP) - Police say a Pennsylvania man suspected of robbing two banks held officers at bay for almost four hours before setting fire to a residence and surrendering with burn injuries.

Forty-nine-year-old James Brown Jr., of Hanover, was taken into custody by police in York County on Monday evening. He was being treated in a hospital Tuesday.

Hanover police say Brown robbed the Members 1st Federal Credit Union by handing a teller a note demanding cash Monday morning. Police say he also robbed the M&T; Bank in Hanover on Monday afternoon.

Police tracked Brown to a residence and say he surrendered after setting fire to it.

Online court records don’t list a defense attorney.
