The FBI and the Philadelphia Police Department are seeking the public's assistance in locating a fugitive.

John Digman, also known as John McCue, has been charged with four counts of bank robbery, in connection with the attempted robbery of the Bank of America branch located at 1841 East Allegheny Avenue on July 11, 2011, and the robberies of the PNC Bank branch at 900 Walnut Street on July 11, 2011, the PNC Bank branch at 1849 Walnut Street on July 18, 2011, and the Beneficial Bank branch at 826 East Allegheny Avenue on July 20, 2011.

Digman is also a suspect in the robbery of the Prudential Savings Bank branch at 238 Moore Street on July 22, 2011.

Police say all of the robberies involved the use of threatening demand notes, but no injuries occurred.

No weapons were displayed during any of these robberies.

Digman is described as a white male, 48 years old, 5'10" tall, thin build, with multiple tattoos on both arms including one on his right forearm of the word "Sherry."

He was last known to be living in the 3500 block of Frankford Avenue, but is also known to frequent the Kensington and South Philadelphia areas of the city.

Digman was released earlier this month from Federal custody for prior bank robbery convictions.

Digman is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the FBI at 215-418-4000 or the Philadelphia Police Department. There may be a reward for information leading to Digman's capture, and tipsters can remain anonymous.
