Police in Pennsylvania have warned that escaped convict Danelo Cavalcante is armed as they continue their 12-day pursuit of the fugitive murderer.

They are searching South Coventry Township, north-west of Philadelphia, and warned residents to stay inside early on Tuesday.

The 34-year-old Brazilian is thought to have shaved his beard in an attempt to elude the authorities.

He was convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend and sentenced to life.

But a week after learning his sentence, he fled Chester County Prison on 31 August by “crab walking” between two walls, scaling a fence and crossing through razor wire.

He stole and later abandoned a dairy van and there have been several sightings of him in recent days.

“Cavalcante is armed with a weapon. Residents in the area are asked continue to lock all external doors and windows, secure vehicles, and remain indoors,” police said in a Facebook post.
