Athens man sang national anthem while tied up by robber

Athens man sang national anthem while tied up by robber  

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

The man didn’t report the purported hold-up until Thursday because he told police he thought he knew who robbed him and could get back his belongings on his own, Athens-Clarke police said.

Officers learned the man’s story on Thursday, when they responded to a home on Midway Road where a resident complained about receiving threatening phone calls, police said.
