A Bracebridge man is facing charges in relation to an armed robbery attempt.

The OPP was called to Circle K on Manitoba Street early Tuesday morning after a man reportedly attempted to rob the store with a butcher knife. Officials say the store clerk took the knife and the suspect ran but came back asking for his knife.

A 19-year-old man is charged with armed robbery and public intoxication. He’ll be in court in Bracebridge on March 27th.
