Hostages Pearland "Chase Bank" Robbery

Hostages Pearland "Chase Bank" Robbery - A hostage situation at a Texas bank ended Friday afternoon with all hostages safe and suspects in custody, said Lt. Onesimo Lopez of the Pearland Police Department.

Lopez said that two armed men had taken an undisclosed number of employees and customers hostage during the bank robbery Friday morning in suburban Houston.

The first suspect was taken into custody in the early stages of the robbery when there was an exchange of gunfire, detectives told CNN affiliate KPRC. The second suspect was taken into custody at the end of the standoff, police said.

Some hostages were released earlier in standoff, and two were released at the end of the event, Lopez said.

About four hours after the situation began, police used a "flash-bang" diversionary device in the Chase Bank branch, Lopez told reporters.

Once the faceoff ended, police escorted from the building three persons who had been hiding in a closet throughout the foiled bank robbery, Lopez said.

A bank manager was physically assaulted by a robber, but the manager's injuries weren't serious, according to authorities and a statement by Chase spokeswoman Mary Jane Rogers.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
