    Honolulu Police investigate the scene of the latest in a series of armed robberies in Central Oahu at the Wendy's restaurant in Royal Kunia Wednesday morning.

Police are looking for a man who robbed a Wendy’s fast food restaurant in Royal Kunia on Wednesday morning.

The robbery occurred at 7:42 a.m. at 94-615 Kupuohi St.

It’s the second Waipahu-area business robbery in two days and follows other recent business and fast-food restaurant robberies in Central Oahu.

Another Waipahu business was hit by an armed robber at about 4:15 p.m. on Tuesday.

According to police, a man entered the business with a weapon, demanded money and then ran off with the cash.

There have been a string of armed robberies involving fast food restaurants and businesses over the last two weeks.

On Monday, the McDonald’s near the Pearl Kai Shopping Center on Kamehameha Highway was robbed at 4:30 a.m. by a man armed with a rifle. The suspect escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police are investigating to see if Monday’s robbery is related to the armed robbery of a Jack in the Box in Waipahu on July 14.

Another Waipahu business was robbed on July 13 and police are also investigating an armed robbery of a business in Pearl City on July 12.
