The Philadelphia Police Department and the FBI are seeking the public’s assistance to locate Carl Goodwin, a fugitive believed responsible for the robbery today of the Wells Fargo Bank branch located at 861 East Allegheny Avenue in the Harrowgate section of the city.

In addition, he is wanted by the Philadelphia Police Department for the June 17, 2013 armed robbery of a Dunkin Donuts at 3705 Germantown Avenue. He has also been charged with escaping from a federal halfway house facility in Philadelphia last month.
