Oklahoma City police are investigating a series of robberies on the south side of the city early Wednesday morning.

In a few short hours, two McDonald's restaurants, a convenience store and hotel were robbed.

Police say they arrested two suspects accused of robbing McDonald's restaurants located at S.E. 44th Street and Shields, and at S.W. 59th Street and Penn. The suspects were found at S.W. 25th Street and May.

There was also a third robbery around 3 a.m. at a convenience store at S.E. 32nd Street and Shields. The clerk told investigators a man on a bicycle pedaled up to the store's drive-thru and demanded money. Police are still searching for that suspect.

Just about an hour later, the Holiday Inn on Interstate 40 near Meridian was also robbed. No one has been arrested for that crime.
