The list includes Metro PCS, Subway, four Keva Juice locations, and others. Investigators say he brandished a gun or a knife before making off with the cash.
On Thursday, he is accused of doing the same at a Cricket Wireless on Juan Tabo. That’s where an employee shot and wounded him and the gun the suspect was carrying turned out to be a toy. Baca-Bosiljevac was released from the hospital Monday, October 18 and booked into jail.
