(Elizabethtown) -- A 73-year-old Mount Joy man allegedly robbed a Lancaster County bank and stabbed a female employee in the process.

Harvey Fitz III has been arrested on charges, including robbery and aggravated assault.

Police say the man entered the M&T Bank in Elizabethtown just after 9:00 a.m. Wednesday and stabbed the worker while demanding cash.

She's been treated for wounds that police say aren't life-threatening and should recover fully.

Police say Fitz drove away in a Jeep Cherokee, which police caught up to in his hometown of Mount Joy, where hewas arrested.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Fitz, who faces a preliminary hearing December 29.
