WINCHESTER, Va. --  Police in Winchester say a suspected bank robber tried to escape custody Monday while being treated at Winchester Medical Center.

A press release says that a corrections officer from the Northwestern Regional Adult Detention Center called for assistance after Charles Franklin Adams III tried to flee the third floor of the building where he was being treated.

Adams is the suspect in a Winchester bank robbery that occurred earlier this month.

In addition to charges related to the bank robbery, Adams is now facing charges of  assault and batter of a corrections officer, attempted disarming of a corrections officer and attempted escape.

The NDADC officer suffered minor injuries in the incident.
