WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- More than a week after a customer was robbed while standing in line at a Wilmington fast food restaurant, a suspect is in custody.

Wilmington Police say the US Marshals Task Force arrested Raheem Jamil Washington last night in Surf City. Washington is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, assault by pointing a gun and two counts of second degree kidnapping.

The Department of Corrections website shows Washington served more than seven years in prison for multiple robbery charges. He was released from prison Feb. 3.

Just two weeks later, police say, Washington robbed a customer at gunpoint as they stood in line at the McDonald's at Long Leaf Mall.

Washington is back in jail under $750,000 bond.
