A 26-year-old Ottawa man faces a number of charges in connection with an early morning holdup Tuesday at a Brittania Woods gas bar.

Patrol officers were called to the gas bar in the 2900 block of Carling Avenue at about 5:15 a.m.

They were told that a man brandishing a large knife had confronted the attendant and demanded cash and cigarettes.

The attendant handed over cash and smokes and the suspect fled on foot.

Police said the suspect was located and arrested later Tuesday.

The suspect faces charges including robbery, carrying a concealed weapon and probation breaches.

He was to appear in court Wednesday.
