MADISON, Tenn. (WKRN) – A man is facing charges after Metro police said he robbed a convenience store in Madison.

According to an arrest affidavit, William Burney, 27, went into the Tigermarket on Gallatin Pike near Emmitt Avenue last Saturday.

The victim was working the cash register when Burney approached her, put his hand on his right hip several times, and said give me everything in the register, according to Metro police.
