PHOENIX (AP) — Police in Phoenix say a man suspected of being involved in three armed robberies in the past month has been arrested.

They say 29-year-old Trey Waters remains jailed on a $100,000 cash-only bond.

He's being held on suspicion of one count of attempted murder, five counts of aggravated assault, three counts of armed robbery with a deadly weapon and one count of kidnapping.

Police say Waters allegedly entered a hotel room on April 12 and demanded property from a man before shooting him in the neck.

On April 25, Waters allegedly robbed an ice cream truck driver at gunpoint and hit him in the face with a gun.

Police say Waters allegedly shot a female cashier at a convenience store during an attempted robbery Sunday.
