Police have found the perpetrator who stole more than $1,000 in cash from an Astoria Bank before fleeing in a wheelchair last week.

Astoria resident Kelvin Dennison, 23, has been charged with robbery after entering the Santander Bank at 37-10 Broadway around 2:10 p.m. on June 29 and passing a note to the teller demanding money, authorities said. Dennison took $1,212 in cash and fled westbound on Broadway in a wheelchair.

According to published reports, Dennison was arrested on Wednesday after a citizen recognized him at a local hospital and made a 911 call in which officers from the 114th Precinct responded. Authorities are still not clear why Dennison was at the hospital.

Dennison was charged with third-degree robbery and held on $15,000 cash bail following his arraignment on Thursday.
