An Athens man is in jail this morning following an overnight aggravated robbery at the Richland Avenue Speedway.

Athens Police responded to a call at the gas station at 12:20 a.m.  

A clerk told officers the man had a knife and demanded cartons of cigarettes and money from the register and then left on foot.

Athens police searched the area and arrested Brian Hoffman, 25, at the top of Carriage Hill Drive.

Hoffman is charged with aggravated robbery, which is a first-degree felony.
