The robberies occurred about 12:15 p.m. March 1 in the first block of East Oak Street; about midnight Tuesday in the 200 block of East Superior Street; and at 3:56 a.m. Tuesday in the 300 block of East Chicago Avenue, police said.

Davis was arrested Tuesday about 10:31 a.m. in the 12000 block of South Green Street after police saw him in a vehicle that had been reported stolen, according to police. He was taken into custody after initially resisting arrest, and was allegedly found with the missing goods from the recent robberies.

Judge Stephanie Miller ordered Davis held without bail, according to Cook County court records. His next court date is set for March 19.
