A 30-year-old man with addresses in Cary and Florida has been charged with three armed robberies within 15 minutes at Capital Boulevard eating establishments on May 3.
Detectives charged Zachary Mark Wohlman after questioning him Friday afternoon, records showed.
Wohlman faces three counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon at the Mona Pita Grill, at a Subway restaurant and at a Dunkin’ Donuts.

Arrest warrants also charged Wohlman with conspiracy to commit the robberies, but another man police were seeking, Phillip Byron O’Shea, 46, of Duchess Drive in Cary, died May 12 in a shootout with Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputies in Jupiter, Fla., after a bar was robbed.
Raleigh police had obtained warrants for O’Shea, spokeswoman Laura Hourigan said Monday.
The warrants for Wohlman’s listed his address as Dutchess Drive, but he told booking officers at the Wake County Detention Center that his address was in West Palm Beach, Fla.
Originally, police had said the Mona Pita incident was an attempted robbery because the man who went into the restaurant with a black handgun did not get any money.
One arrest warrant says, however, that a key to a cash register was taken, and Wohlman was charged with robbery.
Warrants said Wohlman took $400 from the Subway and $134.31 from the Dunkin’ Donuts.
The stickups happened between 9:10 p.m. and 9:23 p.m., police said.
Wohlman was being held in lieu of $500,000 bail.
Between the robberies and his arrest, Wahlman was charged May 11 with resisting an officer in Cary, but details of that incident were not available.
