Police Blotter of the Day: Athens man sang national anthem while tied up by robber

leave a comment »

An Athens man told police he sang the national anthem to himself during an armed robbery on Athens’ Eastside two months ago. …

He told officers that as he was leaving a business at 50 Gaines School Road, a man he knew as “Mario” pulled a gun on him and made him go back inside, where he stole a wallet, cash, a pocketknife and an iPhone from the victim’s pockets, police said.

Mario then bound the man’s wrists with zip-ties and tried to lock him in a bathroom, police said.

“He waited until he had sung the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ in his head before exiting the bathroom,” according to police.
