SOUTH PORTLAND — Police are asking the public for information about the robbery of a Mill Creek pharmacy over the weekend.

The CVS at 199 Ocean St. was robbed at about 4:10 p.m. on Saturday, April 18, by a man who appeared to be in his late teens or early 20s, Sgt. Steven Webster said in a press release.

The man reportedly handed the pharmacist a note demanding drugs, but no weapons were shown. Webster said the suspect left the store with a small amount of drugs.

Webster said the store was busy at the time and police are hoping a witness will come forward. 

The man was described as between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 9 inches tall and of medium build. He was wearing gray shorts, a black zip-up hooded sweat shirt, black baseball hat and white sneakers. The suspect reportedly covered his face with his left hand while he was in the store.
