Devon Walker faces six counts of armed robbery-threat of force and two counts second-degree recklessly endangering safety.
One of the counts stems from a robbery of Cricket, a cellular phone store on Highway 100. According to a criminal complaint filed Monday, Walker pointed a gun at the business owner's head and told him to open the cash drawers.
Walker forced the owner to open the cash register and the manager's register and then made him walk to the back of the store and open a safe, all while keeping a revolver pointed toward him, according to a complaint.
Milwaukee police last week arrested Walker and the owner identified Walker in a police lineup Feb. 10.
Walker is also charged in robberies in Milwaukee, Wauwatosa and Glendale, a spree that started Nov. 29 that lasted through Feb. 1.
