CVS Pharmacy at 43rd and Locust robbed at gunpoint (updated)

Posted on 29 January 2018

Update (Jan. 30): Police spokesman Troy Brown said there have been no arrests in the CVS robbery as it had been initially reported. The suspect is described as an approximately 6-foot-tall Black male in his 30s with a medium build wearing a “bubble coat,” a knit Eagles hat and a face mask.

The CVS Pharmacy at 43rd and Locust was robbed at gunpoint on Sunday night, according to police. An unknown male wearing a mask walked into the store at around 10:35 p.m., pointed a handgun at the clerks and demanded money from the register. The suspect took approximately $400 and then fled on foot westbound on Locust street.

No injuries have been reported.

Shoplifters pulled knifes at the staff in the same store last year, and a thief pulled a gun at the store manager in 2016.
