LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is facing serious charges after police say he robbed several businesses within a week.

According to the arrest report, 32-year-old Bryan Branham robbed the Circle K in the 8800 block of Old Third Street Road armed with a knife on Dec. 14.

Branham is also accused of using a pistol to rob the following businesses: BP Oil in the 2700 block of Crittenden Drive on 12/16/14; Los Caballos Mexican Restaurant in the 3200 block of Fern Valley Road on 12/17/14; the Super 8 Motel in the 4800 block of Preston Highway on 12/18/14; and the Marathon Oil in the 3100 block of Poplar Level Road on 12/19/14.

Police say Branham wore a mask in all of the robberies. He was arrested on Dec. 20 at Preston Highway and Fern Valley Road. Police say his tattoos matched tattoos seen in surveillance video, and that he "was in possession of the clothing, mask and weapon" used in the robberies.

According to court documents, Branham had help during at least one of the robberies. Police say 24-year-old Suzanne Holmes acted as a getaway driver and was waiting for Branham outside the Marathon Oil in a silver Ford Focus as he robbed the business. She was arrested along with Branham on Dec. 20.

Holmes is charged with one count of robbery, but court documents indicate that additional charges are forthcoming. She's being held at Metro Corrections on a $10,000 cash bond.

Branham is charged with five counts of armed robbery. He is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $30,000 full cash bond.
