Man charged with serial fast food restaurant armed robberies
February 21, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A serial robbery suspect was charged Thursday after allegedly using a fake gun in a series of holdups in Chicago.
Jesus Rojas is accused of robbing stores about a month ago to buy gifts for his girlfriend.
When police pulled Rojas over Wednesday, he tried to run and was shot in the arm.
