CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A suspected serial robber appeared in court for the fourth time in less than a week. Lorenzo Bratcher faced new aggravated robbery charges.

Police say Bratcher robbed the UDF on Clifton Avenue at gunpoint on August 30. According to court papers, he left fingerprints at the scene.

On September 5, he's accused of holding up the Thornton's on West North Bend Road at gunpoint. A Crimestoppers tip helped to identify him.

He's accused of robbing the same Thornton's the next day.

On Wednesday, Bratcher performed a rude gesture for the news cameras. A deputy then led him out of court.

On September 7, he tried to leave court before his hearing was finished after hearing his high bond. A deputy grabbed his arm but Bratcher tried to pull away.

He is now charged in seven robberies of UDF or Thornton's stores. His bond for all so far is more than $1.2 million.
