Man charged in robbery of fast-food restaurant

A 23-year-old man was arrested yesterday and charged with robbing the Roy Rogers restaurant on Ritchie Highway near Jumpers Hole Road.

Duval Q. Oliver, of no fixed address, was arrested about half an hour after the robbery as he was getting into a taxi in front of the Metro Food Market in the Pasadena Crossroads Shopping Center across from the restaurant.

Sometime after 9 a.m., a man walked into the Roy Rogers and demanded money from the cashier, said Officer Randy Bell, a county police spokesman. The suspect did not show a weapon or imply that he had one, Officer Bell said.

The man put the money in a turquoise bag and fled across Ritchie Highway, Officer Bell said. Meanwhile, restaurant employees called county police.

A short time later, Officer Edward Anthony of the Eastern District noticed a man fitting the description of the suspect leave the supermarket and start to get into a cab.

The officer chased the man across the parking lot, catching up with him near a Signet Bank branch.
