KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A man was robbed at knife-point by someone he knew early Friday morning behind a bar in the Old City, according to Knoxville Police.
Not long before 4 a.m., 54-year-old Jamie Biggs told KPD he was sitting with a man he knew behind Marie's Old Towne Tavern, which sits at 202 W. Magnolia Ave., when the man pulled a knife and demanded Biggs's wallet.
